Whip up feasts of fresh local fare in the bright and streamlined kitchen/diner and enjoy them al fresco in the enclosed rear garden. After a steaming soak in the tranquil bathroom, finish your day with a welcome nightcap, before drifting off to your double bedroom to dream of tomorrow’s adventures.

We had a fantastic couple of days at Yew Cottage. It's a beautiful cottage with a cosy log burner for chilly evenings. A lovely gift of biscuits and tea and treats for the dog was most welcome.
