STABLE 1 & Stable 2 - Self Catering Holiday Cottages

Both cottages were converted from the local stone-built stables and are “topsy-turvy”, in that the bedroom and shower room / WC are on the ground floor and the kitchen, dining and living areas on the first floor. They are provided with a gas hob, electric oven, fridge with coolbox, microwave, toaster, kettle and general utensils, cutlery and crockery, plus a Freeview TV / DVD and a mini Hifi. Seating in the lounge is provided by a sprung mattress sofa bed, plus the dining chairs if you chose to invite some friends around to visit you. Prices include the linen, utilities, etc. Please let us know if you would like to access the wireless broadband link and we will let you know how to connect.

We provide large fluffy towels and goose and duck down pillows and duvets are offered as standard, although we can provide non-allergy bedding or blankets, pillows and duvets if you prefer.

If you fancy a break from cooking, we can offer breakfast in The Cornmill at £8.00 per person (please let us know the previous evening). The breakfast menu can be seen on the Dining page.

The cottages don't have a washing machine but we are happy to provide you with a laundry service at a nominal charge. There is a clothes dryer in the cottage and you are welcome to use our clothes lines.

Both cottages are non-smoking. Wifi access is free of charge, although there are some "black spots" due to the thick stone walls. Let us know if you have any problems.

Hot water in the cottages is via a combi boiler. This can sometimes disconcert guest into thinking that the hot water is not on, as the taps need to be run for between 30 and 45 seconds for the hot water to appear. From a green perspective, we’re looking at what we can do in the future to eliminate this delay and waste of water, but haven’t found a great alternative yet.

Each cottage sleeps two people as there is only one bedroom (one kingsize bedded, one can be twin or super-king size bedded).

Please contact us for options on short breaks outside of peak season.

BOoking Information

Once you have booked your stay, our agreement is a legal contract and any deposit you may have paid is non-refundable. However, where we are notified 28 or more days prior to the booked date(s), we will refund the amount paid less a 15% charge to cover administration costs. If we are notified within the 28 days, we will retain the amount paid. In both cases, should we be able to re-let the cottage we will return the deposit in full. Where cancellation is for medical / health reasons and you can provide us with a covering document from the doctor, we will refund the deposit in full. For this reason you may wish to take out cancellation insurance, which is inexpensive and can be obtained from any good broker.

We would only cancel your holiday if your accommodation was unavailable for reasons beyond our control. We would attempt to offer you alternative accommodation, however if this was not possible, or unacceptable to you, then we would refund all monies paid by your for the holiday. Our liability would not extend beyond this refund.

We are sorry but we don't take pets.

Please ask for short break options, although these are not usually available in the peak period.

* Although we can't guarantee full access to the cottage before 2.30pm, we try to be flexible and are happy for you to drop off bags, etc. earlier in the day so you can look around the area without concerns about leaving a packed car.
