Centrally heated, the cottage features vaulted ceilings, exposed stone columns and oak beams throughout and is set around a pretty courtyard garden with lawn areas and raised flower and vegetable beds. There is also a large south facing patio for guests' use, accessed from around the side of the property.

Ideally suited for couples, we also welcome small families. Otter has an open plan lounge and fully equipped kitchen featuring oak flooring. The kitchen has a dining table and chairs, oven, hob, fridge, microwave, dishwasher and washing machine.
