All the cottages have indoor and outdoor showers so both can be used.
We prefer our guests to use the outdoor shower so the water does not
go straight into the waste system. Cottage 4 & 5 both have an
additional sink in one of the rooms which helps with brushing teeth,
We do only allow four guests in each cottage. Cottage 3 & 4 both
have queen size beds and a day bed. Cottage 5 has three queen size
beds and a day bed.
