This is at the same location as the Mulberry Cottage B&B. We did this tour in the morning before we left the area and I found it extremely well presented and interesting. It is lovely to see someone (Miriam) with a great passion for what...More

What a remarkable job Miriam has done . She has furnished the cottage with loads of clutter similar to how it must have looked in the 19th and early 20th century. She gives a realistic portrayal of Grannie Rhodes in telling the audience her story...More
