Elegantly styled, the accommodation has those surprising, friendly touches that transform a simple stay into a memorable experience.
The gorgeous weather board cottage is Wiggley Bottom Farm's gem. Its appealing exterior has a traditional look, yet it is in fact a new build which therefore enjoys a great layout, and all the modern comforts and stylish interior you could wish for and looks out over the well-maintained farm to the rolling, gently lit hills of the valley.
The double bedroom and separate lounge both enjoy the breathtaking views, which you can enjoy whilst sitting alongside the wood burning stove in winter, or from the kitchen if you're cooking, as well as from the dining area. The cottage is really well equipped, and has a light and spacious bathroom, and fenced area for your dog outside, to truly make the most of your time away from the stresses of everyday life.
All linen is provided, a selection of local wines are in your accommodation for you to buy, and chef-cooked meals from our favourite local chef at Dine in Tonight can be reheated at your leisure (just ask us for the menu and pre-order when you book) and the paved barbecue area lends itself to a long, leisurely meals in summer at the end of a busy day exploring the region.

Your pet is welcome in the apartment and has its own securely fenced outside area you walk through as you enter through your garden gate.
