Park Neuk

Accommodation Page
Park Neuk is a cottage which combines the character and charm of an old house with the comfort and convenience of many recent improvements. It is spacious, comfortable and generously equipped. It is tastefully decorated and furnished with comfort and convenience in mind. It is fully centrally heated, and there is an open fire in the Living Room.

Parts of the house date from about 1790, (the Master Bedroom and the Stone Room) and have stone walls two feet thick; it was extended in about 1930, (the Library, Bathroom and the Utility area), and again in 1965, (the Living Room, Dining Room and Kitchen). During 2004, the house was completely overhauled: a modern boiler and central heating system were installed and the roof was insulated to current standards.
