An early 19th-century semi-detached cottage with a peaceful feel. Walk straight into the sitting room with underfloor heating, comfy sofa, Roberts radio and twinkling wood-burner. On rainy days you’ll find board games and books, some poetry. A new Shaker kitchen has all the gear for determined cooks and you eat at a round wooden dining table. All the useful basics for cooking are left for you plus a bottle of wine.
Next to the fireplace and behind a door are enclosed stairs with a rope handrail which lead you upstairs to a twin, then a double, both with White Company linen, vintage lamps and high ceilings. The bathroom is downstairs with a large walk-in shower, St Eval and Soap Folk goodies.
In summer you’ll be in the well-tended formally landscaped gardens, admiring the wisteria and topiary and looking out for fish in the pond. There’s a chimenea, sun loungers and outdoor table too. If you don’t want to cook wander down to The Swan, owned by Thyme.
