At Claremont we aim to provide a private, old world atmosphere for those looking for a comfortable stay in an historic, garden environment.
* Pets by arrangement
The Coach-house is fully self contained cottage on our property, “Claremont”. It was built c.1860 as the stables and carriage house for the early residents. The 2 storey building can accommodate 6 but only has 2 bedrooms. The large upper storey has a queen bed and a single, and downstairs (in what was a long time ago, a stable) has a double and a single in a bunk style. The kitchen has all amenities (full gas stove, large fridge, a microwave, etc) and all equipment needed for cooking and eating.
Being situated on our 12 acre property, guests have the freedom to wander about and enjoy the historic environment, the wildlife and the peaceful, country surrounds. The Botanic Gardens are a pleasant 5 minute stroll away. Just beyond them is The Mill complex. For a larger group or just a couple, we also have …
… The Garden Cottage
This is an 1860s bed-sitter with en suite. Set closer to the main house, in its own leafy lane, it is the perfect third bedroom (and second bathroom) for a larger group. On the other hand, it is an equally peaceful setting for a couple looking for an intimate historic stay.
Pets welcome by arrangement
