The nearest bus stop is right outside the property but buses are infrequent.

Arrival & Parking Facilities

We have an electric gate but you’ll be given a fob for your stay. There is plenty of room to park outside the cottage with a gravelled drive. Walking distance to the cottage is approximately 20 yards and there is a step to the front door. There is paving all around the cottage and the lawns & gardens are there to enjoy and relax in. Anyone feeling they want to water the plants are free to do so!

Automatic sensor lights come on when approaching the front door. Two lampposts light up before it gets dark each day.
