The cottage is in a stunning setting and is totally surrounded by farmland with no neighbours and exceptional views. 1/3 acre private garden, firepit and hot tub, all only a few miles from the coast.
Completely refurbished for summer 2020, The Folly is a quirky farm cottage with inglenook fireplace and wood burner. Beautiful character features like beams and stained glass windows.
As this is a character property, the ceilings in the living room, kitchen, family bathroom and some doorways are lower than modern standards but the views from outside are limitless!

The Outside Space is the main event here! The Folly’s unique position offers panoramic views over the grassy valleys and woodlands, right to the sea. The Hot Tub is perfectly positioned to unwind and watch the sun set over the Atlantic, or gather round the stylish concrete firebowl on chilly nights to tell stories and toast marshmallows. On clear nights the garden is fantastic for stargazing.
There is parking for up to 3 cars within the gated garden- the whole plot is around 1/3 acre with a mix of lawn and mature shrub borders.
There are several seating areas- a large wooden picnic table and benches, a lovely bistro set (perfect for your morning cuppa and a sofa and chairs in the newly painted summerhouse. There are also 4 ‘big bertha’ outdoor beanbags for sunbathing or reading
The location makes this property truly unique and is the perfect place to escape from the rest of the world. There is an abundance of wildlife including deer, foxes and birds of prey seen regularly in the surrounding fields. It’s a proper ‘escape to the country’ (but we still have a great internet connection)
Unlike the other cottages we have Thursday changeover. We also offer short breaks – Please see the calendar for available arrival days.
Up to 4 well behaved adult dogs are welcome (must not be allowed upstairs in property or left alone in property).
Please note that we completely change the water in the hot tub between every set of guests, so it may not be fully up to temperature on the day of your arrival. One of our staff will attend the property daily to check the water parameters for your safety.
