Step through the French windows in your lounge, on to your own patio, and enjoy an al fresco drink , or watch the children play in the courtyard.

Downstairs Description

As the larger of the cottages, Asker is light, bright, airy and spacious. When entering this beautiful cottage, you step into the open hallway where there is a downstairs toilet, and a view to the large kitchen, with the staircase to the left.

A few steps through the kitchen area brings you into the lounge, which is home to blue comfy sofas and lots of floor space for the little ones (or dogs!) to play.

There is a lovely dining area that overlooks the countryside, with plenty of room to seat the whole family for breakfast, lunches and dinners.
