The spacious Keeper’s Cottage comprises an entrance hall, a cosy lounge with television and an open fire, a well-equipped kitchen and dining room with wood-burning stove, two double bedrooms and one twin bedroom, all with en suite bathrooms. While the original features have been retained, the cottage has been beautifully renovated, providing a comfortable stay in the historic building.
Bed linen and towels are provided and beds will be made up for your arrival. Heating, electricity and Wi-Fi are also included, but as the cottage is completely off-grid, please use them considerately.
