General - Off road parking for 3 cars. Sorry we are unable to  accommodate stag/hen parties, it is more a place to go to relax and enjoy either time reading a book, socialising with your family, getting together with friends, sightseeing, a family gathering, the garden, access to walking and the local beaches etc.

N.B. We work extremely hard to maintain the cottage to a high standard and comfortably comply and receive our tourist board 4* grading. Albeit, the cottage has its roots firmly in the 16th century country side. Consequently the house is not like modern houses. Some room and door heights are lower,, the kitchen while being functional is not massive but very usable, an occasional a friendly cobweb can appear overnight, there maybe even dust in hard to reach places if you try to find it.  We are not perfect but we try hard to make your time enjoyable to which virtually all guests appear to appreciate from comments and repeat bookings.

Sorry no smoking  or pets.



Internet Access available.  Access suitable for email access / web browsing.  Not suitable for media streaming and gaming.

Access - Kingshoath is a spacious cottage with ample accommodation however, it is a property with its origins in the 16th century. Consequently, some door heights are lower than today's standards (mainly door into blue bedroom). Additionally, there is a difference in ground floor levels with one 8" step between levels and, a step into the downstairs bathroom. To the first floor are some steepish stairs although they have a solid handrail. All this adds to the character of the property but clients should be aware if access and mobility is an issue for them. If in doubt, please call us and we will provide more detailed information.
