We welcome everyone at Lower House.
Due to the layout of the house we are unable to provide a downstairs bedroom or to accommodate guests who are unable to manage stairs.
This cottage is only a few steps away from the main house and has a downstairs twin bedded room, a downstairs bathroom with a shower over the bath and a further twin bedded room upstairs. Cars can be parked adjacent to Stable Cottage and there is ramped access available. The path to the main house is over sunken paving stones on grass, then through the main front door of the house which does not involve any steps over thresholds.
If you have any specific requests or questions that you would like to discuss with us, please call or email.
