Marysville Garden Cottages have eight cottages designed for couples looking for a relaxing retreat.
The cottages have a touch of old world charm while still integrating modern comforts and are within a short stroll to cafes and shops.
Inside the cottages vary slightly, but all have a relaxed country feel. Classic features included in some of the cottages are a claw foot bath, box window seat, timber flooring and stained-glass windows.
Other indulgent features available are a luxury deep soaking bath or double spa bath. Each cottage has a gas log fire, perfect for Marysville’s chilly winter months. While these cottages generally cater for couples with a queen or king size bed, some can accommodate separate sleeping arrangements for one extra adult via a sofa bed.
