These award winning cottages were part of an original 18th century farm house and look out onto the courtyard. They are situated on an 80 acre dairy farm and are surrounded by mature gardens. There is a children's play area on site and a basket ball area for both young and old. After a long day sight seeing in the area, relax in front of an open log fire, sip a glass of wine, or take a relaxing Jacuzzi bath.
