Description and Location
Overlooking the green but tucked away in the courtyard of Holly Tree House, a former Inn and now a Grade II listed building the adjacent Holly Tree cottage is a creative and modern conversion of a traditional outbuilding. Entry is from the shared courtyard to a tiled hallway with cloakroom facilities which provides access to a bedroom with king-size bed and a shower room with washbasin and toilet. A stairway rises from the hallway to a large open plan lounge with kitchen and dining area. The room is lofted to the roof apex displaying the original beams and rafters which enhance the space and provide a warm diffused light. There are views to the green and distant fell-sides from the lounge in particular.
The cottage is quite secluded and has been painstakingly renovated with a mix of modernist and traditional in style. The use of muted tones blended with pale oak and mature pine provides a calm atmosphere and a perfect backcloth for the many paintings by local artists of renown. Holly Tree is a small cottage which belies its dimensions by the space it provides, the perfect place for two within an unpretentious but homely environment.
Please note this cottage is let Friday to Friday.

Here sits East Witton, a pretty village, built around a long green and surrounded by tree lined meadows with the occasional cornfield.
