The Old Sty

Sleeps 4 – 2 bedrooms  Dog-friendly

The Old Sty was once home to our pig ‘Prudence’. She was very happy here but as you can see from our photos we moved Prudence out so we could offer this lovely 150 year old cottage to our guests!

The Old Sty has changed a bit since Prudences’ day although the original brick, flint and slate construction still exists. There are old wood beams which add to the character of the interior and modern comforts make for a cosy atmosphere and relaxed stay.

The single storey dog-friendly accommodation is bright and airy and ideal for guests who have difficulty with stairs or are visiting with toddlers. The two bedroom cottage also features wide doorways and lever taps.

Sleeping up to four guests, the accommodation comprises a sitting room open-plan to the kitchen and features a sofa, two arm chairs, dining table and chairs, and a TV. The kitchen is fully equipped and has access straight out to the garden.

The sunny master bedroom features a comfortable double bed with extra high mattress and patio doors that lead out to the garden. The second bedroom is furnished with twin beds.

You can park outside the door at The Old Sty. Perfect for bringing in your suitcases or shopping.

On arrival you’ll find a complimentary welcome tray with wine/Prosecco, crisps/peanuts, chocolates, coffee, teas and biscuits. We also leave fruit juices/crisps/snacks for children, and provide a complimentary starter pack of toiletries, bath and hand towels so that you can pack lighter!

As The Old Sty is pet-friendly we provide a doggy welcome pack when you book with your furry family members!


When can I check in?

Check-in is from 4pm and check-out is 10am on the day of departure.

Nb. If you depart on a Sunday you benefit from the later check-out time of 4pm. We don't have any arrivals on a Sunday so you can enjoy some extra holiday time.
