Our Cottage in brand new! We wanted to share our beautiful home and land which to us is a special little piece of the "Garden of England". The Cottage is separate from the main house and located within a small stretch of woods, secluded from everything except nature set in our plot of 5 acres, an ideal place to relax and enjoy the countryside. It has its own private access to a footpath which leads to some wonderful walks around the area.
There is plenty of parking right by the Cottage and there is a lock up space for bike storage.
We live on site and our is house some 100 metres away and we would be delighted to give you guidance on local places of interest, paths for beautiful walking any any planned trips and where to eat and drink. Otherwise you will be left to enjoy the Cottage and the peaceful setting.
We are happy to provide a welcome pack of breakfast essentials to include milk, eggs, bacon and sausages, cereal, bread etc. We can also provide champagne/prosecco on arrival and even a freshly baked cake! All this and more can be arranged at a charge.
There is lots to see and do within the area. We provide a comprehensive information pack in your Cottage.
