The Accommodation

The cottages were extensively and sensitively refurbished in 2017. We have made every effort to retain the charm, character and original features of these cottages. Guests need to be aware that ceilings are low and that there is an original steep “ship’s stairs” between the two floors which is not suitable for persons with disabilities and young children.
