'Wren Cottage' - Availability and 


This cosy little cottage for 2 people is located in the ground floor part of a grade 2 listed building with some 200 years of history. With it's quality furnishings, it is within easy walking distance of the harbour and all other amenities and attractions.

The kitchen area is small but fully equipped, including fridge, toaster, kettle, cooker and microwave. There is a double bedroom with all bed linen provided including an adjoining compact enclosed shower, basin and toilet room. Wren cottage benefits from the use of an enclosed shared garden.

A minutes' walk to the excellent Riverside fisheries, and the nearest pub is the highly rated, 'Middle Earth Tavern', just 3 (ish) minutes walk along Church street.

The Nitty Gritty

People love the Wren Cottage, it's highly rated across review platforms, currently at 4.8 out of 5 on freetobook and we have many returning guests. We're confident that the vast majority of people will love Wren's charms and the fact that because we're independent of the online booking companies, we can offer very competitive rates.

We will advise on parking, but expect that it might be a challenge at the busiest of times. The cottage benefits from being located at the side of the town that doesn't require parking permits, but if sometimes street parking isn't possible, the savings on the cottage will likely more than cover the cost of paid parking.

Wren cottage is cosy and compact. The bed is a standard double, but it's against the wall at one side to save more floor space at the other side and for the radiator, the shower room is similarly compact, but fully equipped with loo, basin and shower cubicle.

 You will need to negotiate 15 stone steps from Church street, up to the door of wren cottage, something to think about if you have mobility problems.

The cottage is a ground floor flat in style, with it's own entrance, but there are unrelated properties above, which are also used for holiday letting. As a result, if there is noise above, you will hear it. Thankfully problems have been few and far between, but it's something to consider f you are someone that has to have silence.

A maximum of 2 clean, well-behaved pets are allowed, please don't leave them alone in the cottage and try to make it clear to them that the bed and the sofa are off limits.

If you are very allergic to pets, please look elsewhere.

We supply hand towels and a tea towel but please bring your own towels for showering.
