BABIES & CHILDREN
A travel cot and highchair are available on request.
Two dogs are welcome (three by prior agreement) and are allowed in the uncarpeted areas of the cottage. Kennels are available for working dogs.
The area around Crookhouse is a working farm with livestock in the adjoining hillside and it is important that dogs are kept under control and on leads when walking in this area.

College Cottage is part of a hamlet of properties at Crookhouse. College Cottage is attached to Bowmont Cottage and is the higher of the two cottages (see images). Crookhouse Mill (sleeps 8) sits to the rear of College and Bowmont. The other buildings are not in regular use.
ACCESS - IMPORTANT
College Cottage is accessed via a private estate road which becomes a predominantly hard-covered track. The track involves a number of cattle grids, is steep in places and is unsuitable for very low slung cars. During icy and snowy conditions 4WD vehicles are essential. Please contact us if you have any concerns.
For guests looking to holiday together, this cottage can be booked alongside Bowmont Cottage sleeping 4+1 and Crookhouse Mill sleeping 8. College Cottage and Bowmont Cottage are adjoining with a connecting door. Crookhouse Mill sits a short distance away.
