Perhaps the most like "a traditional country cottage" of all our cottages. Upstairs has a bathroom and a good sized bedroom (with king-sized bed) which can take an extra folding bed. The fair sized sitting room downstairs has a matching sofa and easy chair. It also has an open fire - we provide free firewood. The kitchen/dining room overlooks the meadows and woods at the back of the farm.
