History of the Bungalow

In 1976, old man Roy Crawford built a humble bungalow with two bedrooms and a kitchen, what was to be known as Cottage 14. When Crawfords was sold to the Strupman’s in the early 90’s, Cottage 14 and 15 where kept by Ian and Lyn Crawford to use as their home.

Ian and Lyn, with their 2 children, Justin and Mark lived in the unit until the Strupman’s fire of 1998, which led to the bungalow burning down. The Crawford family were forced to move as result but started letting the other  

half of the house (cottage 15) out to holiday makers, which is still one of the most sought-after units. After returning to the running of Crawfords, Ian and Lyn rebuilt cottage 14 and added it to the letting pool.

At the end of 2020, while the hospitality industry was recovering from the COVID pandemic which saw the closing down of the popular Crawfords venue; The C Club, a decision was made to convert Cottage 14 into a smaller on-site functions venue.
