About this Holiday House

Known also as Jenkins' Cottage and Outbuildings now restored and transformed into the Rail Trail Lodge. Our place was one of the historical miner’s residences and we kept the original and lovely vintage style for sharing it with you.

This is such a lovely house! We stayed here for a family wedding and found it fitted our family needs perfectly. Spacious and stylish, there was plenty of room for everyone and a really lovely outdoor area for drinks and nibbles the night before the wedding. There's only one bathroom but the second toilet off the laundry was useful! Beds were very comfortable and the house had everything we needed! Would love to stay again.
