John & Melanie are usually on-site every day to help you get the very most from your stay (and to feed the birds!). We have lived in the area since 1997 and can advise the best walks, places to visit, restaurants, local attractions, etc. and show you them on an Ordnance Survey map (which you may borrow). We can help light the fire in your cottage, show you how to keep it going, and liaise with local businesses - and we always have some special offers for our guests.

Our prices include bed linen (beds are made for your arrival with poly-cotton sheets and duvets - no feathers); water; electricity for heat, light & power (no meters); a basket of logs and kindling for the fire; welcome pack with tea, coffee, sugar, fresh milk, shampoo, conditioner, hand-soap, toilet roll, dish-cloth, tea towel and cleaning products; free WiFi, parking for 2 cars, and there is a washer, dryer, iron & ironing-board either in your cottage or in a separate laundry room w...
