The cottages

Fowl Green Farm holiday cottages have been created from original stone farm buildings which are at least three hundred years old. In each cottage there remains evidence of their former life so the experience will, we hope, combine 21st century standards of comfort, wheelchair access, and convenience with a little of 18th century rural atmosphere.

The Barn

The barn used to be part barn, part milking parlour and part granary, now it is the largest cottage and has three double bedrooms, one downstairs and two upstairs. Central heating is under floor, which means no radiators downstairs and no cold spots plus plenty of hot water.

The Cow Byre

The cowbyre was converted most recently. It was used as a milking parlour until the 1970s. The cows would walk up into their own stall and eat the food put in front of them in a trough as they patiently stood to be milked. Today the cowbyre is a ground floor cottage which sleeps four people in two bedrooms, a double and a twin. It is very accessible for wheelchair users.

The Bottom Pigsty

These were four small pigsties which were also used for weaning calves. They have rough stone walls and large stone troughs which form the base of the front wall. The feed could be poured in from the outside and the pigs or calves could eat from the trough inside without the door needing to be opened. This was extremely useful since small hungry animals invariably used to barge into whoever was feeding them and knock over the buckets of food. We have left the troughs and closed the gap to the outside to stop the draughts. The bottom pigsty sleeps four people and is completely accessible on the ground floor.
