Ground Floor

The cottage has a brand new custom kitchen which is fully equipped with dishwasher, washer/dryer, oven, induction hob and microwave. All cooking utensils are to  hand and the cottage’s first guests cooked up a Christmas feast of roast goose with all the trimmings so you can rest assured there are ample kitchen tools for you to use during your stay.DSC_0069a

DSC_0108aAll of the rooms in the house are heavily beamed and some care must be taken on the narrow stairs and low ceiling of the landing in order that you do not bump your head. This should be a consideration when booking the cottage if you are infirm or especially tall. The rooms themselves are of a normal height for even the tallest. People were somewhat smaller in the 15th century! Duck or Grouse as they say.

The interior of the cottage was designed by Laura Ashley of London complete with brand new furniture, silk lampshades and pristine, crisp white cotton bed linens . The upstairs curtains and blinds are lined with full black out material to ensure a restful night’s sleep.

At present the three fireplaces are not useable for real fires due to insurance restrictions and the historic importance of the property; extremely realistic electric stoves are fitted in the downstairs inglenook fireplaces   Please note the cottage is absolutely a no smoking property; though of course you are welcome to smoke in the courtyard garden.

Courtyard garden

The cottage has a small but very private courtyard garden which is equipped with table, four chairs, parasol, bench and additional table. There is also a Weber charcoal barbecue complete with tools and lighter for use by guests. The borders of the garden are densely planted with fragrant roses, wisteria and lilac .
