Stay at the distillery

Update 19th April 2021

Due to our unique location in the centre of the Distillery, Seaview Cottage will remain closed for another few months.

We hope to reopen in summer 2021 and will open bookings for 2021 and 2022 once we have a clearer view of when this may be.  In the meantime we’re not taking any new reservations, but watch this space for news!

We’ll be in touch if any existing bookings are affected, but if you have any questions please contact
