The former Gardener's Bothy of the Carnell Estates has been fully restored as a comfortable one bedroom cottage for two. The cottage sits quietly on the outer age of the historic Walled Garden with a small grassed area to the front with chairs and a BBQ. There is also ample parking.

There is a cosy sitting room, kitchen with dining area, bedroom and bathroom. The house is lovingly furnished with a mixture of antiques, contemporary art and collectables. A housekeeping service is available on request for a small supplement.

There is a washer/dryer and the house is hopefully kitted out for most things you'll need during your stay. Tesco and Waitrose both deliver to the Estate for online pre-orders.

The Bothy is within 2000 acres of private Estate. We live in the main house which is approximately 500m from the Bothy.
