A charming complex set around the main yard. The traditional farmhouse and farm buildings, of what was once a stone barn, hay loft, and home to horse carts have now been converted into 3 bedroom "cottages" for discerning self-caterers who enjoy luxe living in historic surroundings. The historic 400 year old farm has been restored and made relevant to the 21st century.
The fusion of chic modern style meets 'olde worlde' charm and character of the cottages are popular with honeymooners, anniversary celebrators, for that romantic valentine weekend getaway, or a special birthday celebration. A home from home, furnished traditionally and surrounded by stone walls and open beams.
A 200 year old cosy ground floor cottage, full of character. Originally a shelter for horse carriages. Ideal for young familes and the less abled (includes wheelchair access)
Indoor Communal Games Room
The communal games room is exclusively for cottage guests use, and includes a table tennis table, snooker and foosball/football table.
All four cottages can be booked individually or together (sleeping 2-27 plus cots).
Please contact us for prices, and see below for a list of what not to bring on holiday as they are inclusive in the cost!
You may choose an out of season short break (November - March) whether it is for a special occasion, or just to spend some extra special time together.
