There are a couple of quirks so please read to the bottom of the description.

The space
The cottage is self contained next to our house. It has an open plan living space with kitchenette, wood burning stove and TV with chromecast and DVD player.
There is a well equipped kitchenette with fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle, toaster, hot plates and oven/grill. No washing machine available at present due to COVID (as this is located within our own house).

**There is no sink in the kitchenette but a basin and drying rack is provided and the sink in the bathroom is drinking water. **

The main bedroom has a queen bed.

**The 2nd room is a small bunk room more suited to children (there is no window). **

Cot/high chair/toys/games/books/DVDs available for your use.
Unlimited WiFi

Tea/coffee/milk/butter/condiments provided
Some firewood provided in winter months.

I am happy to make up a mattress on the floor for a 5th person if it is needed, although a bit of a squash-just send me a message to request.
