The cottages are all furnished to a very high standard and with a variety of layouts we have something to suit everyone, whether you are looking for a location for a family party, wedding reception or holiday with friends. Many of the cottages have twin beds that can be zipped and linked.

We welcome small conferences including team building activity groups who can utilise the grounds and surrounding woodland.
