1) Interior of Cranny Cottage, and 2) the orchard from the terrace.
Niche, Nook & Cranny Cottages have been tastefully and sympathetically converted from 18th century traditional flint barns and rightly justify their 4 star rating; incorporating as they do a wealth of original features combined with modern luxury and convenience. All the cottages have been modernised, furnished and equipped to a high standard of comfort whilst maintaining their historic character and charm.

These delightful cottages overlook their own beautiful gardens and orchard and enjoy glorious views across meadows and farmland to the Axe Valley beyond. Each cottage has its own private patio and seating area and designated parking space.
- Niche Cottage was restored and converted, in early 2006, by craftsmen dedicated to maintaining their traditional skills and has been sympathetically and imaginatively designed. To make the most of the building and the glorious views, the cottage has been turned 'upside down' with the bedrooms and bathroom downstairs and the open plan lounge/dining room and kitchen area running the length of the building upstairs, all nestling under a vaulted and oak beamed roof. Central heating makes the cottage warm and comfortable even on the coldest of nights.
