Weitere wichtige Infos
The cottage was built in 1834 and common to many properties of this age, it does have steep stairs to both the first and second floors. For this reason we do not permit children under the age of 5 years old to stay at the cottage. Similarly, the lack of downstairs sleeping or bathroom facilities makes this property unsuitable for those with limited mobility.
