The cottages are found at the top of a private drive, where there is no passing people or traffic, just sheep and wildlife. Children and dogs are allowed to roam freely and safely in the acre of fenced in garden. Guests and their dogs are free to wander around the 43 acres of grounds. There are many walks directly from the property, without having to drive anywhere. There is total peace and solitude, with fresh mountain air and pure spring water on tap.

The shower room has a shower and WC and dry off with fluffy towels as you plan your day’s activities.

Outside the front door, the private hot tub is waiting for you, alongside the table and chairs and BBQ to enjoy alfresco dining within a fenced garden.
