About Theresa Palmer
Owners Brian & Theresa Palmer designers from the UK. We moved to the beautiful Blue Ridge mountains 10 years ago. Knoll cottage is situated across the field from our home and studio. We enjoy walking the hundred acres of pasture and woodland, and our guests are welcome to do the same. We often bike the New River Trail and are happy to let the guests have the use of four bicycles as well as canoe and kayak. We are keen gardeners and raise our own organic vegetables. Weekends are spent mainly outside enjoying the peace and beauty of the surrounding area.
Theresa Palmer purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Theresa Palmer chose Dugspur
This charming peaceful cottage in the rolling hills of The Blue Ridge is perfect for groups large or small, as there are additional accommodations with a Glamping tent or staying in a Gypsy Caravan on the same property. It is a unique opportunity for a memorable visit.
What makes this Cottage unique

Fabulous, relaxing time for the whole family!
This is our 2nd visit to Theresa's and Brian's cottage. Our stay of 1 week last year was just too short. So we had a 2 weeks stay this year which was perfect. Theresa & Brian are the best hosts and welcomed us with one of Theresa's yummy cakes! The cottage is charming, clean and comfortable. We all had a great time, especially our 2 boys (8 and 4 yo). Time just flew by with walks through the fields amoung the cows, picking blackberries, lazing on the hammock, playing with the dogs, Meg and Tini, and going down to the garden to pick green beans, tomatoes, squashes and potatoes for our meals and chasing the fireflies in the evenings. The neighbours are so nice and friendly. We were sad when it came time to leave and we are looking forward to our next visit.
I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. I was only sorry that we left for England so soon after you arrived. As you said in your review ,the neighbors are friendly. I knew that Farmer Gary and Victoria ,would see to it that all was well with your stay
I do hope that you will be able to come back next year.
2nd time here!
Our favorite family vacation spot - had everything we needed and is so peaceful, no need to go anywhere else! Love this cottage!
Pretty little cottage on top of a large hill overlooking the pasture and stream.
The cottage is so cute and quaint. The kitchen has all the small appliances necessary- so glad there was a coffee maker- along with refrigerator and stove. The dining room and living room are small but functional. Living room has gas fireplace-we couldn't figure it out even with the written instructions- but the space heaters worked just fine. The master is attached to the living room- very nice and loved the down comforter. The bed was softer than I'm used to. Woke up to what I thought was my husband's phone vibrating- it was the cows! Never had that happen before! Theresa was very nice- came and gave a little tour of the house and welcomed any questions. My daughter wanted to see the horses on the neighboring farm so Theresa drove her and my husband to the farm but they were out to pasture so she did get to meet some of the little lambs and chickens. Although we were only there 2 nights my daughter is ready to move in. Beautiful and would like to visit again. Thank you!
Relaxing Cottage with Rolling Hills
We had an amazing time! The cottage was just perfect. Everything we needed was provided including games, books and movies. It was so relaxing to have breakfast out on the porch with coffee and hearing the cows greet you each day. Some days we had plans and others we just drove around admiring the beauty of the area. When we got back, we took our dogs (yes, they were able to join us) for a walk on the property! They loved the cows too. Theresa (the owner) was great. She told us to make ourselves at home, making us feel welcome. She also made some gingerbread for us and it was delicious. We were so happy that we chose this amazing property.
Exactly what we needed
Thanks for the nice stay. Enjoyed the fresh carrot cake with our breakfast each morning.
Away from it all country vacation
Nestled in the hills and farming country, not far from Fancy Gap, a delightful little cottage atop a hill surrounded by fields, cows, deer and fresh air! Cottage is old world, fairly basic kitchen but very charming. Bed was comfortable and log, gas fire very welcoming on cold nights. Cell reception sketchy, limited internet and only videos to play on the TV... but that is part of the charm of the place. Therese and Brian are very charming hosts, Therese is very energetic and aims to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. If you want a “get away from it all “, relaxing peaceful break, this is the place. On walks in the area check out their Gipsy Caravan and Glamping tent. This has been our second stay, will be coming back again. Loved it.
