Self Catering Accommodation : The big farmhouse kitchen has recently been refurbished, and a blocked-up door reinstated to give access to the garden, and to the stunning views mentioned above.

These facilities have been specially created to accommodate disabled guests using wheelchairs with reasonable dexterity and those who cannot manage the stairs. There is a small step up to the shower area, and a seat in the shower. When not needed as a bedroom, this room makes an attractive study area or additional lounge. It is a light and airy room, with a half-glazed door also giving direct access to the garden. On the first floor are three big bedrooms; two with king-size double beds and one with twin beds. There is a family bathroom, and all the rooms have wonderful views. The furnishings are traditional, mostly antique pine, as appropriate to the character and style of the cottage.
