Dating back to the 1700s and affording breathtaking views across the valley, these award-winning former barns simply ooze character. Each of the three holiday cottages has its unique charm and offers a peaceful break away from the rigours of everyday life.

Over 11/2 acres of grounds boast secluded sitting-out areas dotted around the duck pond.
