The Coach House was converted from a former carriage and stable block, the original building dating back to the 18th or early 19thC. With the exception of a gallery bedroom all other rooms (entrance hall, lounge, master bedroom with en-suite shower room, bathroom/WC, bunk room and kitchen/dining room) are on the ground floor. The gallery bedroom (overlooking the lounge) is accessed by a flight of stairs from the lounge. This cottage has some facilities for visitors with limited mobility (low switches, high plugs etc) – if you require more information please don’t hesitate to contact us.
