An overview of rowan cottage amenities

This page contains details of the the amenities we provide at Rowan Cottage. The owner lives on site in the annexe, which ensures the cottage is always clean and well maintained. We continue to seek to improve the cottage, so if there is anything missing which would aid your stay, then let us know.  To that end, in 2016, we added some new artwork, updated the oven, hob, TV, music systems, bunk room facilities, added an extra easy chair in the lounge and created a new patio in the garden with new furniture.  In addition, thanks to our neighbours the view down the Esk Valley has been opened up, so those of you who have stayed with us before can enjoy an even wider view of the valley.

Our Cottage is A No Smoking & NO PETS Zone

For the benefit of the majority of our guests we regret we do not allow smoking (including e-cigarettes) or pets on the premises.
