The Offshot is brand new for 2015. A pretty little studio barn conversion providing a unique bolt hole for two people. Right next door to our other cottage, Bucklaw Cottage. Part vaulted ceiling creates a light and spacious feeling, and exposed stone feature wall adds to the charm.

Carefully furnished with bespoke sourcing of contemporary and retro style furnishings. Provides a romantic and luxurious hideaway. One room living with separate luxury shower room and fully fitted kitchen which features designer appliances. Leather corner sofa provides a comfortable seating area with the added luxury of a projector with freeview channels to add a touch of decadence. A vintage style record player with a selection of LP's gives another quirky touch. Large collection of reading material.
