The Garden Cottage

Imagine a quiet, private space in the heart of the city– steps away from any convenience, yet peaceful enough to work, think, create and sleep!

Nestled at the back of our substantial garden, the cottage has unique character. Built in 1923, it has been converted to a comfortable bed sitting room with lots of privacy. It features a pillow-top queen bed, a handmade diamond willow chair and cozy cottage decor. There is lots of storage space for clothing and personal goods which will make it ideal for those staying for more than a few days. An in room phone with free local calls and a 19” LCD TV with built in DVD player sit on a large work desk. High speed wireless internet makes it easy to stay connected with the rest of the world. The cottage uses the washroom facilities in the main house, accessible by a charming wooden walkway.
