Poolside & Stable Cottages

Poolside is a very comfortable cottage set in a 17th century converted barn with original oak beams throughout. 

The kitchen is very spacious with all amenities including electric cooker, fridge and microwave. Just off the kitchen is a dining area with table and four chairs. The lounge has a big comfortable sofa and chairs, large colour television and a gas fire for added comfort. Upstairs are two double bedrooms with traditional furniture throughout, but mind your head on the beams!! Off the landing is the bathroom, with bath, WC and basin.

If you like history this is the cottage for you. Poolside is available for weekly holidays (Saturday to Saturday).

Staff Favourite – Jonathan

Poolside is definitely my favourite cottage for a number of reasons. Firstly it brings a lot of great memories back, of playing in the hay barns as kids. The old Oak frames which must be a few hundred years old are still shown, so if you like character then this is the one for you. It was converted from a hay barn in the early 80’s, and I still think of it as it was. Loads of hay tunnels and games inside it

“If I was going on a fishing holiday then this is the one I’d choose. Its close to the Mickey mouse pool and only a minute or so from both match pool and bar/restaurant. Yet it remains quite hidden, quite deceiving actually about its true size. Its a lot bigger inside than people see from the outside”

You always know who is in Poolside, and is a good topic of conversation in the bar sometimes, particularly “Duck or Grouse” suggestion. Its priced well for a 2 bedroomed cottage, which some guests for some reason by pass for log cabins or newer cottages.

Poolside will always be my favourite – just dont tell everyone!
