About Roger and Liz Pickett

The Cottages have been in Liz's family since 1908, growing up here has made it an extra special place for us both. We both love to potter at The Cottages and are constantly adding features and extra touches to make our guests stay an extra special experience. Our prime aim is to create the holiday cottage we ourselves would like to find on our travels. We love to travel, play golf and garden. Roger is an Engineer and Liz is a Water colourist which creates the perfect balance. We completely renovated the property spending the 2 years remodeling, re-thatching and upgrading these wonderful 300 year old thatched cottages, making them state of the art but retaining their sense of tradition. Roger being an Engineer added the technical attention to detail that makes staying here such a comfort and joy.

Roger and Liz Pickett purchased this cottage in 1908
