Described by guests as "a hidden gem', The Potting Shed is a snug self-catering cabin set in a large garden, surrounded by fields and trees. The adjoining summer house gives space to relax in and enjoy the views and sunsets. Breakfast is provided.
The Potting Shed is a rurally located cabin which sleeps two, or three with a camp bed added. It is tucked away around the side of the main house and enjoys lovely views, privacy and a large garden.
The Potting Shed has a loo and a little kitchen which is stocked with tea, coffee, sugar, salt & pepper, biscuits, and breakfast.
Breakfast consists of two types of cereal and milk, bread (butter, jam & marmalade), a pain au chocolate, yoghurt and fruit.
There is a double bed and we can provide a single camp bed when required. Three guests is the maximum that The Potting Shed can take.
There is an oil heater which is good for providing a constant cozy temperature, and the fan heater (the 'wood burning stove'!) is great for a quick top up if needed.
We have chickens who wander around the garden.

Interaction with guests
We are here to help make our guests' stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, and are very happy to discuss the local amenities, give recommendations, and directions if required.
We do our very best to respect guests' privacy at all times, but are always here to help.
Our dogs are very friendly and love to say hello. We can keep them away from The Potting Shed when required, but any guests who have a strong fear of dogs may feel uncomfortable with them being 'next door'.
