Whitsun Cottage is a beautiful property which sleeps 4+2 guests in two bedrooms (with the +2 option being a day bed and a trundle bed on the first floor landing), with two bathrooms. The front of the cottage is covered by a Virginia Creeper, particularly attractive in autumn, making the cottage stand out in its row.

Dating back to the 19th century, the cottage has a wealth of character features including two exposed stone fireplaces with cosy wood burning stoves, ledge and brace doors and an impressive oak stair-rail. These period pieces have been complemented by contemporary décor and modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a Freesat TV with DVD player and a well-equipped kitchen. There is a pretty courtyard garden to the rear of the property and free on-street parking is available just a short walk away from the cottage.
