Cosy and decorated traditionally this enchanting cottage has exposed stonework, exposed beams & a working log burning stove. The property is double glazed and there is full central heating if required.

The cottage adjoins two of our other  holiday cottages and the C16th manor house.  It overlooks a courtyard to the front and gardens to the rear where a private patio with picnic bench table leads to 5 acres of secluded shared sculpture gardens & seasonal outdoor pool.

Please note that due to the Covid-19 pandemic we have followed industry and government guidelines to reduce risk to guests, ourselves and others. Consequently we have reduced the number of high traffic touch surfaces in the property by removing cushions, throws, some ornaments, books, magazines, guest comment books, tourism leaflets, extra blankets, games, complimentary products. Despite reduced restrictions we continue these practices and cleaning protocols as best practice and in order to comply with legal covid risk assessments.
