The Bothy (2+1)
The Bothy (2+1)

A peaceful place, perfect for couples, with a little snug in the living room (a great extra sleeping space for a little one!). Your dog is also welcome to enjoy the break with you in the Bothy too. Your treats include a bottle of raspberry wine, a loaf of plum bread, gorgeous jam and organic chocolates plus other local goodies. And now your dog is treated to a doggy hamper too!
New this year is the king size bed in the bedroom with linen or cotton sheets, thick fluffy organic towels and brand new luxury bathrobes.
The step-free Bothy is all at ground-floor level and has a little enclosed garden just outside the back door – perfect for both you and your dog. A wooden table and chairs sit on a brick patio and there’s also a basket swing, sun loungers and a BBQ too, all in this gorgeous suntrap. Spend time enjoying the summer’s sun in the day or snuggling up by your wood-burning stove in the evening. Or soak away in your wooden bathtub. Relaxing is the key ingredient when staying in the Bothy!

New this year is the king size bed in the bedroom with linen or cotton sheets and thick fluffy organic towels plus brand new cotton bathrobes. There’s also a cosy box bed in the living area which you can use for a daytime snug or for an extra guest or two (great for your children!). And finally, the deep copper spa bath with twinkly lights above is an extra special place for relaxation.
Down the stone steps to the back of the stables is your own private little garden with wooden table & chairs, basket swing, sun loungers and a BBQ for you to enjoy in summer sun. If it gets cool later in the evening, you can come indoors and enjoy a glass of wine in front of your wood-burning stove. Just chill and relax – you deserve it!

A little bit about us…

Our 18th century stable block was lovingly restored using natural materials to create two places to stay, a room for small courses and a little local history museum. The accommodation is warm and welcoming with peaceful bedrooms, lovely living areas, beautiful bathrooms and well-equipped kitchens.  The one-day courses are both for local people and those spending their holiday here. The local history museum currently features information and memorabilia of the Great War.
