Working with the aim to provide a place where we would be more than happy to holiday ourselves, we have furnished the cottage to a high quality standard, whilst achieving a warm and spacious atmosphere within. The cottage is a cosy retreat for 2 adults, and we have added some special little touches to “welcome you”, from fresh flowers, homemade preserves, to a bottle of fizz. For the comfort of all our guests, Willow Cottage is a SMOKE FREE and PET FREE cottage. Our prices are fully inclusive, so no meter readings or bringing your own linen.
