The SpaceNo. 6 on Church is a cottage that was built in the mid-1800s, and in 2015 it was completely renovated to its current form as a self-catering unit.

The cottage operates as a single unit (you won't share other people), and accommodates 1 to 6 guests, as well as a baby and a toddler. Larger groups can be accommodated if you don't mind being a bit cramped! The cottage has three bedrooms: the main bedroom has a queen bed and a cot, while the twin bedrooms have one single and one three-quarter bed. The larger twin bedroom also has a toddler bed. The main bedroom has an en-suite bathroom (shower and bath), while the other two bedrooms share the second bathroom (shower only). Each bathroom has its own geyser, ensuring hot water for all. The comfortable living-room seats five and has a 49" TV with DSTV Premium and a 6-place table for meals.
