From the kitchen, French doors open onto the enclosed private patio, which is ideal for eating out whenever it is sunny.
2 Bedrooms and Bathroom
The bedrooms and bathroom are upstairs. Admiral Cottage is over 200 years old, and the stairs are steep, which unfortunately makes it unsuitable for the infirm.
The comfortable bedrooms are beautifully co-ordinated with quality furnishings, blinds and curtains as appropriate, bedside lights and crisp bed linen.
There is a large double bedroom and a second bedroom, which has twin beds. Both bedrooms have original oak beams and stripped floors. We pride ourselves on the comfortable new beds and have had a stream of visitors comment on how they realise they need to buy new beds when they return home.
A modern bathroom including a powerful shower and nice new towels completes the upstairs.
The cottage shares the large front garden with Waterloo House, which was the old village shop. There is lots of grass for the children to play on and the garden to the front overlooks turf fields.
Parking for one car is available at the front of the cottage. There is ample parking at the rear of the cottage for additional cars.
Children are welcome at any age. A travel cot, high chair and stair gate are all provided free of charge in the cottage (please bring your own cot linen).
Tourist information brochures, leaflets and guide books are provided in the cottage. There is also an information pack with instructions for all machines, information on local shops, pubs, restaurants and recreation providers, as well as the addresses of local doctors, dentists and hospitals.
