The Cottage used to be the larder for the main house, in the early days after Camphill bought Drumour lodge. In the early Corbenic years it was used as a workshop space for the weaver. In the 1990’s the building was made into a home and received the name "the Cottage". An extension to the house was completed in 2005.
Now it is the home of six residents, six live-in volunteers and two house co-coordinators. At present, we are of six different nationalities and mother tongues, and three different continents.
We share a homely, colourful living room with a wood burning stove, plants and plenty of comfy cushions, a dining room, a garden next to Corbenic's garden workshop, and of course a cosy kitchen.
The small kitchen table is the heart of the house. It seems to be everybody's favourite place! Here we like to share tea, coffee, our stories and sometimes a late night meal, and many of us like to help with getting meals and tea breaks ready.
