About the Host, Noel And Joan
We would like to welcome you to Lawson's Cottage. The house has been in our family for over 50 years - originally owned by our Uncle Eric. On his passing, we renovated the cottage in line with the era of when it was first built.
When visiting "Uncle" he would always welcome you with a warm 'cuppa' and some cake, giving you the feeling of home. We have tried to recreate that feeling when you stay at Lawson's Cottage with our home make biscuits, port wine and chocolates for you to enjoy, as well as our book exchange library, games and DVDS.
We hope you like the effort and small touches we have put into the cottage and it makes you feel like you are at home (without all the hard work!)
As a couple, we love renovating (you might have guessed) travel and enjoy a good round of golf. We welcome you to "Uncle" Lawson's Cottage. Enjoy your stay!
