The Garden Cottage has been refurbished during 2010 to provide overflow accommodation for parties taking any of the other Ormidale houses. It is now occasionally available to book on its own, when not required by any of the other parties on the estate, to provide a wee cottage for two people on their own.
Sitting in the same courtyard as The Mill House and the Old Barn, it is a lovely old stone cottage with a slate roof. The waxed oak floor throughout gives a warmth and a touch of authenticity; the bathroom is travertine tiled in a wet-room style and is the same finish and look as the rest of the estate.
It is a luxurious and spacious two person cottage, but we have used the space to try and create as much flexibility as possible in the accommodation provided. With one proper bedroom, plus convertible sitting room and two additional box-style bunk spaces (one off the bed-sitting room, and one just opposite the bathroom) you could accommodate 8 or 9 guests.
There is a bedroom with a basin, and a sitting room with a kitchen area (and a bed settee.) The shower-room sits in between the bedroom and the sitting room, with a bunk area opposite it. A second, screened off box room lies off the sitting room. Both box areas have a three-quarter sized mattress.
The whole space is on the same ground floor level, and is designed to be as accessible as possible for people of limited mobility. Positioned just 5 metres from the Mill House and fewer than 15 from the Old Barn, the Garden Cottage works well as additional accommodation for either.
Prices for 2012, short-break rental followed by weekly rental. If only required for two people, we will occasionally be able to discount.
