Four of the cottages have been sympathetically converted from Victorian buildings retaining the original features where possible. Individually decorated and furnished to a very high standard, to ensure they are as unique in character as they are diverse in style. Enjoy the King or Super King size bed and the luxury of the quality towels & linen. In 2022, we added a single storey lodge to the accommodation that we offer - Orchard View. Built to our own design, offers a spacious open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner with two sets of patio doors that allow you to admire the terrific views and offer access to the two decked areas - ideal for eating al-fresco; enjoying a glass of wine or just relaxing after you return from a day exploring the area.

We normally offer short breaks from the beginning of November to the end of February, but it is always worthwhile telephoning us or looking at our website if you are arranging a last-minute break.
