The SpaceOur historical cottage is a great place for you, your family and friends to spend a wonderful holiday. The cottage has 3 bedrooms, a cosy living room, a large fully-equipped kitchen and a private patio area with the all-important braai.
On the ground floor there is a beautiful double bedroom with bay windows looking out onto the lush garden. Just off the room is a large dressing room with hot shower and toilet.
Upstairs there is an open-plan bedroom with 2 single beds which is ideal for children. We can accommodate more children by adding a mattress to the room if required. Also upstairs is another double room with charming low ceilings which add to the 'olde world' feel to the cottage. There is another bathroom upstairs with a bathtub, hot water and a toilet. You have to walk through the open plan bedroom in order to access the bathroom, so ideally this room is perfect for the children or a group of friends who get on well together.
Morley House has a large kitchen with an island workspace and a dining table which can seat 6. The kitchen is fully-equipped with electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and all the pots, pans and kitchen utensils you will need to cook up a great meal. If you don’t feel like cooking you can have breakfast or lunch in the tea gardens or even an evening meal if you order in advance.
