Figgy Cottage is as gorgeous as one would expect from a refurbished and lovingly restored former gatehouse. Fine furnishings, stylish designer fabrics and a modern kitchen - just perfect for a relaxing getaway.

A very comfortable sitting room with deep sofas bordering the open fireplace, just right for a cuddle up in the evening. Netflix is available on the TV and plenty of books and DVDs are left in the cottage for you, along with an iPod dock and a Roberts radio.


The smart kitchen has all mod cons including a dishwasher, slate floors and all the equipment you could wish for. So if you tire of the many local eateries why not cook up a storm at home?


A rather special four poster large double bed in the master bedroom piled high with luxurious linens, covers and cushions. Two very pretty single bedrooms are just as gorgeous. All have deep mattresses, high thread count linens and some rather lovely blinds and curtains in each room - pure bliss. The beds are made up with duck down bedding however hypoallergenic can be provided if you prefer.


A bright sparkling en suite bathroom for the master bedroom and a large family shower-room with sloping ceilings complete with lashings of hot water and big fluffy towels.


Parking for one car is available outside the cottage, more can be parked a few steps away in the courtyard.


One adult dog is very welcome. We charge £35 per dog per week or short break.
