Other Notes

This cottage is quirky and fabulous, but as an old house, some of its most characterful features may not be everyone’s idea of perfection if you like things brand spanking new! The gardens are accessed over the owner’s private driveway which is occasionally used by the neighbours’ car to access their house, however, the driveway is gated. Please note, all duvets and pillows are high quality feather and down, so may be unsuitable for those with allergic conditions.

Child Friendly: Children will love the safe large lawned garden with football goal, sandpit and play boat. There is ample space to run around and a super games room off the kitchen, with football table, keyboard and other indoor toys to keep them amused.
Group Getaways: With five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a huge garden, two reception rooms and a large dining kitchen, House in the North will welcome 10 guests with ease.
