The Cottage

Nestled amongst the Abbey Farm cottages, a high-walled terrace surrounds the front of the property. A glass-front open-plan kitchen, lounge and dining space overlooks this terrace – blissful early mornings here will see you capture the mandarin and rose hues of an island sunrise.

A double and a twin bedroom, plus an airy family bathroom, are tucked away beyond the central living space.

Our Favourite Thing

Lush greenery including crawling roses and clusters of succulents cascade across the terrace walls, further adding to its privacy.
