Cottage 26 is ideal size for single traveller. 2 rooms, nice linen, high ceilings and utter peace and quiet. When built in mid1800s, each of 31 adjoined cottages housed an average of 5 people! And no bathrooms built on in those days. Everything works. Basic but practical. Wonderfully soundproof stone walls.

We stayed in these cottages when our children were young some 30 years ago and came back with them and grandchild for a trip down memory lane. Still really cute but cold although the heater worked very well...just a shame the log fires have been replaced. I had booked 2 cottages a couple of months beforehand wanting the ones by... More

Love these little cottages. Pity they painted the stone but i understand why. The now white interior and a modern touch of flat screen tv, gives something for every traveller. Neat, simple and tidy and able to accommodate most bedding configurations. A great base for travellers that loves to explore the area and its historical past.

I can understand why No open fires now. Maybe council could up the price on a couple and install combustion fires and wood supply and replace carpet. Better yet if it is an issue just manage the good reverse cycle system to suit. When room is warm wait till Shutter is pointing away from the couch and switch off the... More

I have stayed her many times over the years but was so disappointed to find they have now banned use of the open fireplaces and installed RC air conditioners. Yes they warm the room up well but not the same atmosphere, which we were hoping for in a country weekend away. Another new thing is TVs- not really needed either.... More

We stayed here for one night and enjoyed the charm of the old miners cottages. They are being renovated, but were very reasonably priced. A very short walk from the town centre, which has an excellent bakery, and the dinner we enjoyed at the Burra Hotel was excellent (I highly recommend the lamb shanks). Next time we will have to...
