Description from owner


The end one of a row of 17th century Grade II listed almshouses, this quaint little stone cottage offers the perfect romantic break. A wealth of oak beams and original exposed brickwork give it a unique atmosphere, enhanced by the owners' careful choice of furnishings and fittings. The kitchen, complete with beamed ceiling, ceramic sink and granite worktops, combine up to date facilities with old world charm. This leads into the lounge, with stone lintels and leaded window panes and an electric stove to make it cosy all year round. Upstairs you feel like you are stepping back in time and indeed have to 'step through' a door in the brick and beams wall into the main bedroom. This room is full of character too and boasts a Victorian style bed and chandelier light.

“Wonderful cottage”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2020

We stayed at Pegges Almshouse in October 2020. It’s a lovely place for a couple and has everything you need in terms of modern appliances, a great shower, plenty of room and is very well maintained. Maria couldn’t have been more helpful and we will definitely book again if we are up that way again.
