Other Notes

The stairs in this old cottage are quirky and a little steep so may be a little tricky for those with limited mobility but fine for everyone else.

Child Friendly: The large garden with timber play fort and play equipment will keep children amused for hours, but this is set in the corner and does not dominate the garden if a child free environment is what you are seeking.
Wedding Pads: An ideal honeymoon escape due to its peaceful location.
