Holiday Rental House
Trekkle Cottage is a recently refurbished, terraced cottage. It was originally built as a mill workers cottage in 1790 and some of the 220 year old timbers are still in view. It has a spacious, open plan feel downstairs flowing between the kitchen, dining room and lounge. There are patio doors from the dining area leading to the lovely garden where we have a patio area with table and chairs for outdoor dining. The garden is secluded and sunny for most of the day with the afternoon and evening sun shining on the patio seating. The bedrooms are spacious and sunny and have super comfy beds with fresh, hotel-style bedding throughout. The house is well insulated and a fully controlled new heating system has been installed with separate time zones for bedrooms, bathrooms and living spaces.
