The Hut is a cosy peaceful annexe, with two twin rooms and shower room

In the 1950s the cottage offered simple bed and breakfast hospitality and during the summer months the owner moved out of the main house and retreated to a bothy in the garden to free up bedroom accommodation.  

This building is adjacent to the cottage, but not directly connected, and is reached by some stone steps and a slightly sloping grass path.  

We call this annexe the Hut.  Not very imaginative but any attempts to adopt a different name have failed so the Hut it is.   

We have revamped the building and it is now a simple, cosy, wood-lined space offering additional sleeping accommodation.  There are two twin bedrooms (one leading off the other with a communicating door), a shower room with loo and basin, and a small entrance lobby. There are no kitchenette facilities – you need to use the cottage kitchen.

The Hut has no extra living space so its purpose is not to increase capacity to 10 adults at Rose Cottage. The cottage rooms are of a traditional size and there is not enough room in the dining and living rooms for comfort. 

However, if you are 6 adults and some of you prefer not to share a bedroom, or you are grandparents who’d like to escape for a little peace and quiet, then you might like to take up this extra sleeping accommodation.  Maybe there are teenagers in your party and the added space will keep everyone sane.

The Hut has heating, WiFi and a TV. 

The Hut can only be booked in conjunction with a reservation for the main cottage and is not let separately.  There is a flat rate of £200 per week, regardless of the time of year. If you want to take advantage of this extra space,  you can book the hut via our reservation page or, alternatively, contact us direct on
