Sixpenny Cottage description

Sixpenny Cottage takes its name from a Treasure Trove of James I Six Pence pieces discovered in the fireplace of an old shepherd's cottage that once stood on the site. Now, it is a holiday home that offers beautiful and tranquil surroundings.

A short walk will take you to the Wishing Well where you can experience an extensive menu offering homemade cooking and a variety of delicious puddings and cakes. There are also two pubs to choose from. Upwey village with its majestic Horse Chestnut trees and sparkling stream offers inspiration for any artistic talent.
