Tinker's Cott

"We are not surprised to have found so much to admire & inspire us here...we leave with an even longer list of books to find & read, material to cut up & sew ...we shall miss the quiet, such a luxury - as well as the sounds of streams & rivers, and can't wait to return..." K&L. We have decided not to open in 2020, but please do contact us for details about booking Tinker's Cott in 2021 via dovegreyretreats at
