An award winning farmhouse

Originally built in 1764 Coldharbour Cottage, long since derelict but now been completely restored to its former glory. Many of its original features and characteristics of the rural farmhouse have been saved for you to enjoy. We found so many gems, a huge inglenook fireplace a bakers oven, hidden cupboards, numerous artefacts from old postcards, games and a smoking pipe – all now on display in the cottage!

Perfect for a quick getaway. Short drive to the local towns and villages. Andrew is a great host and really looked after us.
