"was everything and more we would wish for in a holiday cottage."


Entering the cottage from the courtyard, you are lead into the stylish and comfortable lounge. Warm colours and orignal artwork with comfortable seating and travertine flooring throughout the ground floor.


The lounge is made for relaxing. This shows the door leading to the upstairs studio bedroom and the ground floor hot tub and wet room.


Two sofas - one a bed settee - a feature living fire and original artwork.

Flat screen TV with Virgin Media, DVD player and free wifi for easy relaxing.


To the left of the lounge is a large and bright, free-standing kitchen with dining for 6-8 guests. Equipped to a high standard, functional yet stylish and comfortable, this kitchen is well-loved by our guests.

"Immaculately clean and hosts were superb and helpful"
