Our Story

The cottage dates from the 18th century and was once owned by the notable Anna Gurney, whose family founded Barclays bank. You can see a memorial to Anna Gurney in Overstrand church, where the testimony to Anna’s admirable spirit becomes clear. Anna made it her life’s work to nurse shipwrecked sailors at the cottage and was locally renowned for her philanthropy and determination within the constraints of her society. 


In recent years, the building served as a country club and as a hotel before becoming a private family-run holiday cottage.
