- Adagio Holiday Cottage: 2 Double Rooms
In times gone by, the building that is now Adagio holiday cottage was used to grind corn. Work horses would turn the stone grinding wheels that produced flour, which was used in traditional farm baking. In later times, an engine replaced horse power. Still in place are the beams used to support the cogs and various bits of machinery that were used in the corn grinding process. A doorway from what is now Trevena Star allowed movement of the various materials to and from the grinding process.
Adagio holiday cottage is named after a particularly beautiful show jumping pony, which also retired here at Craven Garth.

When he came to England his name was "Skippy Blue", but as there was already a pony registered in this name, he had to have his name changed to Corby Wood. However we just nicknamed him Skippy.
