About Ruth & Gareth
We have just joined HomeAway ready for the Fall 2014 season although we do have a few days available for Aug 2014
Ruth & Gareth purchased this cottage in 2005
Why Ruth & Gareth chose Stockbridge
The cottage is part of a 1792 built estate that was once owned by Norman Rockwell's great friend Doctor Donald Campbell. The Doctor and his family appear in many of Rockwell's paintings including the most famous Before the Shot that was actually painted in part of the main house that was the doctors surgery.
