Moonstone Holiday Cottage
Your home away from home
The wall between the lounge and kitchen was once the
boundary of the Abbey grounds. The sofa leans against the original Abbey
boundary today. The Victorians extended this row of cottages, added gardens and
built a new wall at the end of the garden.
