Restoration and Change
Originally built in 1867 to house a District Nurse in the village, Lyme Cottage and the Little Bothy were both sympathetically restored during the early years of 21st century by their previous owner. Many of the original cottage features remain including the fantastic internal oak doors and tiled floors. A modern two-storey addition to Lyme Cottage successfully increased its living space, adding a pretty little garden room with stunning views through the arbour to the fields beyond.
The Little Bothy (originally a space for the nurse to treat patients) had been rather neglected over the years, and was at this time developed into a sweet little en-suite guest bedroom. During the summer of 2012 the Little Bothy underwent further change, with the addition of a fabulous oak conservatory that has transformed it into the beuatiful self-contained holiday cottage for two that it is today.
