Originally an old Inn, the property was derelict and has been sympathetically restored between 2011 and 2013, resulting in a light, modern interior and retaining all the exterior charm and character.
The cottage has an ‘upside-down’ arrangement to make full use of it’s natural position tucked into the hillside. There is underfloor heating throughout the cottage which provides all year round comfort.
In colder weather there is a wood burning stove and lots of sledging opportunties.
The open plan arrangement combines a modern and fully equipped kitchen with a separate dining table. There is a kettle, toaster, electric induction hob and cooker, built-in microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer and fridge with ice box. There are dishwasher and washing machine tablets along with washing up liquid, soap and tea towels. On arrival you will find tea, coffee, sugar and milk as part of your welcome pack .
