Smokehouse Yard Harry's Cottage Kitchen Lounge Bathroom Bedroom

Harry's Cottage was originally part of the smokehouse development behind the former fishmonger (Harry Maddrell) shop in Peel. In 2010, the smokehouses were demolished and two new townhouses were built to sympathetic conservation standards. In 2011, the former filleting rooms, where Harry carried out his daily work, were converted and renovated into visitor accomodation.

Outside is the storage area for a refuse bin, parking for one space within the courtyard.

A refuse bin is provided in the courtyard. Bin liners for the kitchen bin can be found in the under sink kitchen cupboard. Collection day is Monday morning, so any refuse can be left in the outside green bin.
