Yew Trees Cottage was opened in 2008, after a sympathetic renovation program. The cottage is a beautiful old stone coach house with generous proportions, harking back to days gone by when the pace of life was slower. Careful renovation, design and interior styling has retained all of the charm of the old building and improved upon it, by adding in all the comforts and contemporary features you would expect from a great holiday cottage at a great holiday location.
Both child and dog friendly, Yew Trees holiday cottage is a real home from home with everything you require for a wonderfully relaxing and memorable holiday. There’s space for up to five guests at the holiday cottage, and lots of space for play, relaxing and dining in the beautifully tended garden: Take a nap in the summerhouse, lounge in the sun with a glass of wine, or just enjoy a delicious barbeque with good company.
