Following an extensive refurbishment programme, the cottage now offers the very best in comfortable, luxury accommodation whilst remaining faithful to the original style and feel of the building.
The beautiful hand-turned oak kitchen boasts underfloor heating and a wood burning stove. The Britannia double oven with six gas burners gives ample scope for even the most exacting cooks and a centre table with soft leather chairs provides a cosy dining place in front of the fireplace.

We are very fortunate in Falkland to have so many handy service providers right on our doorstep. Across the road from the cottage is a fascinating music and antiquity lovers' paradise specialising in antique violins and a street away there is a well stocked pharmacy for life's more practical requirements. A short stroll takes you to a bank, a top class bakers and greengrocers, a hairdressers and a post office with a general store. Three boutique shops carry a variety of tasteful take-home gifts.
The aptly named Covenanter Hotel with its excellent restaurant, is a great place to dine without needing to venture more than a few yards from the cottage.
