Please contact us via the Enquiries Page if you’d like to book this cottage.



Skye Cottage is a charming 19th Century stone cottage on a quiet residential street, with 2 bedrooms, stylishly furnished to a high standard with all of the comforts of home; it can sleep 4 to 6 guests. Owners, David and Anne Watts pride themselves on attention to detail, so you will find a well-equipped kitchen (details below), comfortable beds, flat-screen smart TV and free Wifi. Original paved flags in the lounge add period charm. The paved patio to the rear is fully enclosed and has patio furniture and a BBQ. Note: this is a period cottage with 3 steps between the bedroom and bathroom (there is a night light). Street parking

We should mention that some of the furniture in the lounge has been replaced since the 3-D digital tour was filmed. It had to be done! The still photos of the lounge below are current.
