The Little Bothy

Peaceful and stylish - this is a beautiful and very comfortable cottage and is equipped with everything you could wish for. It is in a lovely, peaceful location and Kathryn was a great host. I have no hesitation in recommending The Little Bothy and hope to visit again.

Perfect for a romantic getaway - quiet, peaceful and relaxing for just the two of you…

This recently renovated two bedroom barn sits behind Old Sulehay Cottages and was originally built to provide a laundry and store rooms for the farm cottages built in 1873 by the nearby Apethorpe Estate. The barn has been thoughtfully restored and extended to provide a modern, self contained cottage sleeping four people. Imaginatively designed and finished to a very high standard, the barn offers luxury and comfort in abundance.
