The cottage is a delightful Georgian double fronted house with an enclosed rear garden, which is very private. Rear access is gained from the adjacent Green Dragon Lane. The cottage was built in 1720 and renovations were completed in May 1998, to provide a very comfortable and attractive home.

There's a good selection of DVDs, books, games and magazines. Logs and coal, available locally, are supplied for three days of fires.
