Brackenthwaite Cottage is our largest property and dates back to the 16th Century. Steeped in charm and character, this former farmhouse has three bedrooms which can accommodate up to six people, a private south facing garden, free WiFi service and a well equipped kitchen with separate dining room. Please note that we do not accept pets in this cottage. The Old Stables Cottages originally formed our stable block and open up onto the central courtyard. Each has three bedrooms, exposed beams, exposed limestone walls, bathroom with shower and a communal porch which is ideal for storing coats and boats. The laundry room with washer and dryer can also be found adjacent to the porch. Keepers Cottage is a south facing two bedroom property which is all set on one level. The cottage has an open plan living area, galley style kitchen with breakfast dining area, wet room style shower room and lawn garden area.
Each cottage boasts modern facilities including Sky Freesat TV and DVD player. To the exterior, the cottages offer an outdoor seating area with barbecue and there is plenty of off road parking. All bed linen and electricity is included in the rental price but please note we do not provide towels except in Brackenthwaite Cottage. Cots, high chairs and baby baths are available free of charge and we also provide essentials including washing up liquid, dish clothes, tea towels plus toilet and kitchen rolls. All our properties offer non-smoking accommodation.
For an extra charge of £20 per stay, one well behaved dog is welcome in each of our cottages except Brackenthwaite Cottage. We also offer stabling and grazing facilities for horses at our farm. There is a lovely nature trail around the farm where you can enjoy spotting buzzards, deer and many species of wild flowers.
