Lydensign gets its name from long ago as the place where the password or sign was picked up to be handed over at Passby, a cottage down the hill, before visitors were allowed into the Castle grounds. Supposedly there are underground passages from Lydensign to the Castle but we have never found any evidence!

Lydensign is a detached 3-bedroom cottage, some parts dating back almost 200 years, with 2 double beds, 2 single beds and a fully equipped bathroom.

Linen, bath and kitchen towels are all provided. I always perform the changeover myself - thus making sure that everything is clean and ready for you so that you can start to enjoy your holiday as soon as you walk through the door.

The smaller sitting room has a night storage heater, open Victorian fireplace and a colour TV/video.

The dining room has a night storage heater, log burner, dining table and chairs with front door opening onto the porch and then lawns.

Downstairs there is an all electric kitchen with a oven, modern full-size hob, microwave, toaster, kettle and sandwich maker, coffee maker, fridge/freezer, tumble drier and washing machine.

Outside the cottage there is ample parking area, washing line and garden furniture. There is a large pond in almost an acre of lawns which attracts an enormous variety of wildlife with heron, frogs, toads, newts, dragonflies and the dipping swallows are in abundance during the summer months.

In the surrounding fields are the small roe deer and badgers but they are a little more shy! Buzzards can regularly be seen and heard circling the nearby fields.

Well-behaved pets are always most welcome but by prior arrangement please.

Looking forward to hearing from you and hopefully meeting you and your family.
