Interaction with guests
The cottages have beamed ceilings and many original features but they are very much 21st century exuding luxury, comfort and warmth (including premium quality bed linen, comfy beds with mattress toppers, robes and sumptuous towels). We will greet you personally with a welcome tray, pot of tea, locally made scones and preserves. Our aim is to provide you with a lovely, relaxing, self indulgent treat in a fantastic location with incredible views and wonderful walking straight from the door! We want you to have a great holiday and go home refreshed and ready to meet the world again!
