'The Bonnet' at No. 1 Yew Tree Cottages is a delightful, bright and cosy self-contained flat. It occupies the top floor of a Victorian stonemason's cottage in Rockness. There are wonderful views and a feeling of tranquillity. The only access is through the front door, reached by the pretty blue staircase seen in the photos.
The Bonnet is open plan, with a star spangled oak double bed (made by the owner), a compact kitchen and neat shower room. Heating is provided by the wood-burning stove, (logs are supplied), with back up electric radiators. The woodburner will be lit to welcome you making it very warm and inviting, if it is cold !! Tea, coffee, milk ,croissant and home made jam will be there for your arrival. There is no TV, but there is internet access.
Cotton sheets and towels are provided.
You are welcome to wander, sit in the garden.
The Bonnet is completely private and self-contained, having its own entrance, and one guest car parking space. We ask that you arrive after 4pm, and leave by 11am.
Interaction with guests
The owner, Fiona Valentine has a wood workshop in the garden, and two friendly and well behaved collies, and is generally on hand to welcome you and tell you about the area.
Other things to note
I am afraid although this site says The Bonnet can take extra guests, it can only accomodate two people !!
This is our home, and we will be grateful if you will respect it. A shoes-off rule to protect the hand made wooden floor is suggested. There is a no smoking policy, and regretfully no pets.
