Each of their Tower Cottages boasts a distinctly unique theme, from the Cinderella’s Gown cottage for fans of Cinderella to the Greek temple-style Terrazza of the Titans and The Faerie Forest that resembles the home of a pixie.
However, what will truly captivate your horror story-loving soul are Dracula’s Fangs, a cottage designed to fuel your vampire fantasies, and the Crown of the Pendragons, which transports you to medieval times.
