Nestled within glorious unspoilt countryside on the edge of the village, this delightful, spacious, newly decorated and furnished, one bedroom cottage was probably built in the early 1800’s. The tranquil and sheltered, south-facing garden, bordered by a babbling stream is rich in flora and full of bird life including pheasants, woodpeckers and a resident peacock! It has been in our family for forty years having been bought by grandmother Lay in 1971, and been much loved ever since. Carefully and sensitively restored it has many original features and retains much character and charm. The cottage’s location, stylish but cosy interior and wonderful natural garden, make it the perfect place for a romantic break, walking/sightseeing holiday or just to unwind. Decorated in an elegant but simple style with vintage china and original artwork by local artists, we hope you enjoy spending time here as much as we do.
The front door leads into an entrance porch with space for coats and boots.
The “living” room with its solid oak floor, painted beamed ceiling, original inglenook fireplace and Jotel wood burner , is ideal for cosy nights in on cooler evenings. There is a stero with radio and a selection of Cds as well as digital TV with Humax and a DVD player. The Shaker style kitchen is an open plan yet well defined area and is well equipped with all the usual appliances including a dishwasher and washer dryer.
The sitting room leads through to a bright and airy sun room with a dining area and an additional sofa so you can relax and enjoy the garden even on a chilly day. In the sun room is a selection of books of local interest to help you get to know the area and maybe assist in planning your daily excursions. French doors from the sun room lead out onto the terrace where there is seating and space to barbecue or just relax and enjoy the garden.
The staircase leads from the sitting room up to a small landing space and then into the bedroom to the right and ahead into the attractive dressing room and bathroom.
The pretty airy double bedroom has views over the back garden and the fields beyond. The Vi Sprung bed can sleep two in king size luxury or be split into two separate 2ft 6” single beds upon request. There are two bedside tables with lights, plenty of wardrobe space, a selection of books and a radio.
In addition to the double bedroom is a dressing room with additional storage and large mirror, which leads into the bright bathroom with over-bath shower and electric shaver point. Both provide views over the garden and fields beyond.
At the front of the property there is a parking space for one car. At the rear there is additional storage in the shed for items such as bikes and surfboards.
A major feature of the property is the sheltered, natural, garden which leads down to a stream bordered by fields and is full of bird life. This is a truly special place to relax and unwind.
We welcome dogs (we have one ourselves) but ask that you discuss it with us first prior to booking.
