Overview

About the property

Three bedrooms. Cinema room. Sauna. Table Tennis. One well-behaved dog welcome.

Keepers Cottage is a Victorian gamekeepers house and has been completely refurbished to a very high standard, it offers high quality accommodation for up to six people in the cottage and the adjacent converted barn. It is reached by a private track through the woods and is situated in a grassy woodland glade.

If you really want to get away from it all, you can hole up in the cottage and apart from the occasional gamekeeper or woodsman passing by, you will be completely undisturbed. Relax at home as the house itself has a cinema and a sauna as well as a table tennis table. The house and barn are completely enclosed with a courtyard for outside dining and letting children and dogs run free but safely.

Guests have the opportunity to walk or mountain bike on the owner's private estate and in the woods around the house. Ideal den making opportunities for the young, the surrounding countryside is a haven for wildlife and is steeped in history. Offas Dyke, the border between England and Wales in the Dark Ages, runs directly through the estate and the only neighbours in the woods are fallow deer and badgers as well as buzzards, red kites, ravens and woodcock.
