The cottage has a wealth of character features, including oak beams, floors and doors, and an inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove. This character is enhanced by the stylish decor and furnishings, and complemented by modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a flatscreen TV with Blu-Ray player and a well presented kitchen.
The cottage sleeps a maximum of six people, in three bedrooms, with two bathrooms. There is an enclosed garden and two off-street parking spaces are available. Winterberry Cottage is ideal for groups of friends or a family, looking for a peaceful retreat in a beautiful area.

Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than six guests at the property.

In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas. If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.
