To enable us to have a large amount of floor space to suit the changes required for the 2020 season a temporary restaurant has been placed along the river banks within our car park, this robust construction brings you are a little closer to Nature, it also has a street food kitchen where Nartnapa will often be found showcasing some freshly cooked food.

To park at the Cottage Inn there is a slope outside of our front door, please drive slowly and carefully down, cars park against the river wall, although quite a large car park it does get full pretty quickly so please be considerate to others and park alongside other vehicles and not in open space.

 The car park at a higher level does not belong to the Cottage Inn and all spaces are rented by local residents, please do not park here.
