Little Byre is deceptively spacious and provides the following facilities:
Outside: There is a little enclosed terrace which affords a south facing aspect with patio table and chairs - a lovely place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine whilst enjoying the view.
Additional information: All bed linen and towels are included along with Gas and electricity. Full gas central heating throughout the cottage and double glazing to ensure it is warm all year round. A high chair, cot and staircase gate can be provided if needed. Sorry but the owners do not allow pets and Little Byre is strictly non-smoking.
