Set back from, but an easy 2 minute walk to, the main street of the historic Germanic town of Hahndorf you will find Billys Cottage. Steeped in history this charming restored cottage speaks of the beauty of yesteryear but with all the modern conveniences of easy living. Sleeping up to 7 guests in 3 rooms, luxurious linen and towels plus a sumptuous breakfast of local produce is provided.
Built in the 1840s and lived in by several generations of the same family until the 1970s Billy's Cottage has since been sympathetically renovated and beautifully looked after. The open plan kitchen and dining area flows to three bedrooms all elevated just above and up a flight of three steps. With a wood burner combustion heater in the living room and gas heater in the dining area, staying warm is never a problem and in the hot summers, the cool slate tiled floor and thick stone walls keeps the whole home at comfortable temperature. Offering a modern, convenient and unique approach to days gone by living, it will get harder and harder to leave Billy's Cottage as you fall in love time after time.
Billys Cottage will be made up ready for you with fresh 100 cotton sheets for your comfort plus luxurious cotton towels are supplied. You will find breakfast supplies for one breakfast, including local produce, in the fridge. Billy's Cottage was originally two separate buildings and so the bedrooms are located up a small flight of three steps. For those travelling with a baby we have provided a port-a-cot with bedding for your use. For those travelling with dog it is most welcome but must remain outside. The yard is fenced and dog proof when the front gate is shut. There is a kennel provided. BYO dog bedding. Please let us know in advance if you are bringing your dog.
Guests are welcome to access all areas of the house and garden.
We endeavour to meet all guests on arrival if possible. We are available by telephone if there are any queries and we only live ten minutes from the cottage so we can help with anything during your stay.
