Courtyard Cottage has one large bedroom consisting of a king-size bed, with the option of an additional single day bed. The L-shaped layout of this room means that the single bed can be tucked around the corner, offering a little privacy. There’s also plenty of room for a travel cot if needed, which can be supplied on request. The room is tastefully decorated in cream and white with rich blue accents, and features prints and fabrics by designer Vanessa Arbuthnott.

The spacious bathroom is beautifully decorated and has a light, fresh and airy atmosphere. There is a bathtub with overhead shower, and luxury toiletries are provided for your stay.
