The Garden Room Self-Catering Cottage

For people looking for a bit more privacy and independence we can now offer The Garden Room self-catering cottage as an alternative to our B&B accommodation.

The Garden Room is an existing stone building in the middle section of our garden that has been completely renovated and extended to create an intimate and attractive cottage with sleeping for two.

The development has aimed to keep the character of the original building whilst providing modern levels of insulation, warmth, comfort and accommodation making it suitable for year round use.

Arranged in an L shape, the cottage is open plan on one level and comprises a bed room and sitting area in the original building with the kitchen/dining area and shower room in the extension.

The dining area faces south west and has a large full height window looking out onto a private patio and decking area which is for your sole use and is quite a sun trap.

The kitchen is equipped with a two ring hob, combination microwave, fridge with freezer compartment and dishwasher. (There is no washing machine).

There are two 2’ 6” single beds that can be zipped together to create a King sized double making the accommodation suitable for both singles and couples. There is room in the living area for a travel cot but no other beds are provided.

There is a settee in the living area, a TV with Freeview and "smart" DVD/Blue Ray player giving you access to iPlayer, facebook, Netflix and the like.

Heating is provided by efficient convector and "living flame" heaters and the full height window also provides a source of warmth in the winter on sunny days.


The Garden Room is in the middle section of our garden which is well screened by fencing, shrubs and trees to ensure privacy. Please be aware there are a number of steps to negotiate to reach The Garden Room so it may not be suitable for people with impaired mobility - please discuss with us if this is an issue.

The top level of the garden comprises a patio at the back of the main house and grass lawn. During the school holidays we serve home-made cream teas to the public on the patio and you are of course very welcome to partake!

The bottom level of the garden is used solely by ourselves and we keep our chickens there. Please be aware that we need to pass the cottage to access our part of the garden.
