  • “Be careful in taking a large car to the cottage, could be awkward getting back to the road, because of the rutting in the track and nowhere to turn around.”

    - Mr Holland, September 2020

The property

The Cottage is inviting and welcoming with its bright, neutrally decorated rooms and you’ll love the cosiness that the open fire and woodburning stove bring during the cooler months.

In the summer you’ll be eager to sit out and relax in the stylish garden furniture at the top of the terraced gardens with the far reaching views stretching away into the distance.
