This Victorian cottage is a unique piece of history in a beautiful and relaxed seaside village. Come and relax by the fireside, in the cosiest of settings, that will be sure to help your pulse drop and set your mind at ease. The cottage dates back over 300 years and has all the character and charm to prove it.
Stunning coastal walks are equally as impressive in the lonely Autumn and Winter gales as they are in the busy Summer months.
Come and relax in a 360 year old gardeners cottage in the sheltered confines of a Victorian walled garden just a short stroll from the beach.
The cottage pre-dates Myrtleville House (our family home) and has a lot of its original period features. Once said to be used as a small monastery, it is a truly unique building in a gorgeous setting. Once the fire is lighting and the kettle is on the worries of the modern world become a mere afterthought.
We have two large double rooms which and a beautiful single room too. If needed I can add an extra single bed to accommodate larger numbers.
The kitchen is the heart of the home, with a cosy antique wood burning stove. It is the kind of room that's perfect for tea drinking and long chats.
Breakfast food is provided and will leave you fully satisfied:)
Out in the garden I have put up a cozy little yurt for larger groups or anyone who feels like something a little different. It has a nice double bed futon and a wood-burning stove for a great blast of heat.
Out in the polytunnel, where the heat builds up, there is a hand-made hammock which provides an excellent spot for a quiet nap amongst the fruit and vegetables.
Parking is provided of course, there is lots of space and it is very safe.
Guests are free to roam the gardens and the 25 acres of farmland for walks which provide a nice space for relaxation.
I encourage guests to use the produce from my vegetable and herb garden for there own meals.
If you want to collect the eggs from the hens in the morning, or help to feed them, just let me know:)
Interaction with guests
I will certainly be present and more than willing to give my time to guests. This is a very personal service at the best of times but if my guests require time and space then they will have it in abundance in Myrtleville.
I like to sit and chat with guests when I can, give them some recommendations and share a few cups of tea.
It often happens that I might share a beer or take guests out to the local pub for a few pints and some live music. It all depends on the guest or what is going on in Myrtleville on the day.
In the past few years I have had the good fortune to be able to take some guests to beach bonfires, cliff walks, foraging tours or on kayak trips with some friends.
That's what I love about travelling and hosting with Airbnb!
Other things to note
Myrtleville beach is a two minute walk down the hill and there are a whole host of beautiful coastal walks in the area. You won't even need to get in your car!
I try my best to gather and serve as much as I can from the garden depending upon what is in season. There are farm fresh eggs from free range hens right outside the window.
Every year we plant a Bee Meadow which is a hive of activity in the Summer but provides us with fresh flowers all year round.
I like to see my guests treat the cottage and its contents with respect.
Smoking is allowed outside where there is a nice little bench to rest and enjoy the peace.

I love hosting and travelling with Airbnb:)
These days its more hosting than travelling and its always nice to see my home through the eyes of my guests. They help me to keep things fresh and inspire me to always try new ideas around the home and the garden.
