Hill House Cottage is a detached 3 bedroom former farmhouse which was built in 1679 and provides comfortable, cosy holiday accommodation for up to 5 people. The cottage has recently been renovated from top to bottom to a very high standard using local craftsmen; bringing the cottage up to modern day living standards but retaining and sometimes exposing new character to the building to provide a unique holiday experience. We have furnished the cottage with high quality beds and bedding to ensure a comfortable night’s sleep and provide both a large upstairs shower room and downstairs wet room with on demand hot water supplying the rainwater and traditional shower heads for a wonderful showering experience.

We welcome guests with one well behaved dog. For more than one dog please contact the owners.
