This cosy, rustic former shepherds cottage is located in the quaint hamlet of Banaston. It's the perfect place for relaxing in the beautiful garden, swimming in the nearby rivers and lakes or exploring the national parks and scenic walking trails.
The Chicken Coop’ is a charming stone cottage that sleeps 2 adults and one small child (1 double and 1 small single bed). Please note: If you have a bigger party we also have an apartment opposite this cottage that sleeps 4 people. Please see link for booking:
The Chicken Coop is located on top of a small hill opposite the village church which gives you beautiful panoramic views. The cottage itself is small and quirky yet traditional. The whole of the top floor is divided into two separate sleeping areas that are private from each other. The small, narrow stairs from the bedroom takes you down to the kitchen, lounge and dining area which is cosily combined in one area. The bathroom with shower (no bath) is off this room. The kitchen comes equipped with a gas hob, microwave, toaster, fridge and cooking equipment. There is no air con but the cottage always stays very cool in the summer as it built from thick stone.
Please note, the stairs are steep and narrow so may not be suitable for very young children or people with mobility problems.
The cottage is nestled within a large beautiful garden with patio, chairs, table, parasol, hammock and a large stone bbq. Is an ideal place to unwind whilst watching the raptors circle overhead. The owner, Tita, lives next door so the garden is shared but it is large enough for you to have privacy if you would like it or to join Tita for a drink on the patio which has become customary to welcome the guests.
Wifi is available for guests to use.
Disponible para huéspedes

Guests should be aware the cottage is compact and the stairs are narrow but it’s all part of its charm.

I am half Spanish (from my mothers side) and half English but have lived in Spain for many years. I am on airbnb to advertise my mothers beautiful cottages in the Pyrenees. I love music, gardening and football (although all sports are appreciated in my family such as Rugby, Cricket, Tennis, Tour de France and any other major sport. We always welcome guests to join us to watch a major sporting event like The WORLD CUP, WIMBLEDON, OLYMPICS or whatever might tickle ones fancy!!! I enjoy life which is very easy to do in Spain. I speak fluent Spanish and am happy to help with any questions or local knowledge needed in this beautiful area. We know the area very well and have enjoyed FISHING, SKIING , HIKING , SWIMMING, ADVENTURE TOURS eg. RAFTING, BARRANCOS, KAYAKING, SMALL AIROPLANES, CLIMBING, MOUNTAIN BIKING ; WE HAVE THE BEST AREA IN EUROPE, THE LONGEST TRACKS AND SOON WILL BE HOLDING THE EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS. A really amazing area for the mountain bikers. Eating out is a pleasure we all enjoy, so there has to be certain standards sometimes, especially on holidays!!! We can, and are happy to advise on all these areas. We joined airbnb a year ago but have hosted for many years and pride ourselves on the good feedback.
