About this Holiday House

Originally a rural Post Office, the cottage was relocated & refurbished by previous owners to provide self catering accommodation. The Cottage is adjacent to our home - close enough if you need help but far enough away to afford privacy. There is a Queen Bed and fold out couch in the living area with linen provided. Please note if you are two friends travelling together and require the fold out couch in addition to the bed, there will an additional charge. Please enquire for details. If you are travelling with a baby, a portacot is also available but you will need to provide your own linen for this. The small kitchen has a stove, microwave and fridge and a selection of pots, pans and utensils to allow you to cook a meal. If you find you're missing anything, of course you're always able to borrow it from the main house. The bathroom is small with a shower and handbasin while the toilet is located separately in what was originally the telephone booth - complete with original felt soundproofing. For entertainment there is a TV with basic TV channels and a DVD/BluRay player with movies (or bring your own). We also have books and board games for rainy days. WIFI is currently being installed. We provide complimentary eggs, bacon, and bread if you book for at least two nights. For single nights we provide breakfast cereals, milk, ground coffee and a selection of teas for your first breakfast.

Lovely location and helpful, friendly hosts. The accommodation and amenities were just as described. The refurbishment of the old Post Office includes some lovely details. A very nice base for our visit to WOMAD.
