Property info

Lawn Cottages has been designed with a focus on guest privacy and relaxation. Each Cottage is separate from the others by over 15m and accessed directly from the guest driveway. We can provide contactless check in and check out if required. The mature and beautiful gardens are a surprise to many guests, as well as the vegetable gardens and fruit trees guests can pick their own fruit from when in season. The complex comprises 6 luxury cottages, 3 which are new in 2019 and 3 fully renovated the same year. Each cottage is air-conditioned, has double glazing, modern underfloor heated bathrooms, new beds, decks and a private and wonderful garden outlook. The cottages are situated around the complex separate from each other, and designed for privacy. Great for families and couples. The water supply to each cottage is from a natural artesian aquifer. We are pet friendly with two cottages (Magnolia and Flax) in which we allow pets to stay on request, which is subject to management approval - please email us. An additional pet fee per stay applies.
