This Arts and Crafts-style cottage was built in the early 1900s and retains its high ceilings and large windows. It's been thoughtfully decorated with every piece of furniture and accessory carefully chosen, and has the feel of a boutique hotel.


There aren't too many facilities but the attraction is the glorious location. Welcoming owners Cheryl and Ciaran have lived in the house for over 30 years and their local knowledge is invaluable. There are charging points for electric cars.
