The house was the family home in 1972 when Rod and Jane Bell opened it to guests. Stone built around 1850 and substantially altered towards the end of the 1890’s. The house stands in 20 acres of wild garden on the cliff above the safe, sandy beach of Druidston Haven.
The ecologically centrally heated house now has eleven bedrooms, most of which have sea or garden views. Five rooms have private facilities, showers, bathrooms or lavatories. The other six rooms share three bathrooms in the tradition of a typical family holiday house. The new rooms on the second floor have full private facilities and panoramic views of the bay from their shared balcony.The dining room, sitting room and cellar bar open onto terraces and grassy slopes overlooking the sea. Children and pets are made welcome and the atmosphere encourages visitors to treat the place as a second home. Books and maps are available and there is plenty of information on the locality. There is a separate television room and the regeneration of the original family Farmhouse Kitchen provides a Rayburn heated room with a large oak table suitable for use as a private dining room for up to ten. This Farmhouse Kitchen is also used for children’s supper at 6.00 p.m. each evening.
These are the converted stables and outbuildings of the original house and were designed to be easy to run with bedrooms, bathroom and an open-plan kitchen/living area. Cookers and water heaters are either propane gas or electric with open fires or solid fuel stoves for cold evenings. Each cottage has a refrigerator, an iron and electric heaters. They are fully equipped with pots and pans, crockery, cutlery and bedding, linen and towels. There is ample parking space outside each cottage and the guests have the run of the hotel grounds as well as their own patch.
We also manage two other cottages within a stone’s throw of Druidstone.Curlews Cottage That beautiful dreamy cottage across the valley and Granny's situated above the Druidstone, overlooking the hotel with magnificent views of the coast ,generous amounts of space and equipment.
