Corncrake cottage is a renovated croft house standing in a fenced mature garden with off road parking. The cottage has an open plan kitchen/living room on the ground floor, plus a large double bedroom and a popular sun room. Upstairs there is a toilet with walk in shower and two single bedrooms. We regret that the Cottage is not suitable for wheelchair users.

The kitchen is equiped with a washer/drier, fridge and microwave. The living room has a freeview satelite TV, plus a wide selection of books and DVDs. Relax and enjoy!
