The
Experience

On its timeless wooded hill, the red sandstone farm cottage was restored by Tim and Gilly some years ago and has been much appreciated since. Original stones and beams were preserved and terracotta floors and pine cupboards put in; cookery books, strings of garlic and board games add to the laid-back feel. The ancient bread oven, its brick surround charred by the ages, lends a rustic air to the dark old kitchen while the sitting room is easy with cherry-pink sofas and stove. Attic bedrooms, simple and cosily carpeted, have small dormer windows to more-than-pretty views. French windows from the kitchen open onto an outdoor barbecue area where you can dine with a backdrop of fields and woods, never-ending hills and hilltop Curemonte. There’s also a super walled-off pool, shared with your delightful British hosts next door, and a vast oak-floored barn that you may use whenever you like: table tennis, billiards, dancing, grand piano; it can be hired for weddings and workshops, too. An unfussy, no-frills home in a lovely setting, for a family in search of peace and space – and if you’re in a large group you can book the main house too (it sleeps 12).

Reviews

First stayed in Fleuret Cottage in 2003 and have been back so many times. Booked for 2019 too! We just love this Cottage and the owners are so friendly. The local area is just amazing with fantastic views and quiet walks. Combine the ambience of the Cottage with the views, and the tranquillity of the area; we can't think of a better place to be.

James, Crowborough

We had an absolutely fabulous fortnight at Le Fleuret Cottage. The cottage had great facilities and everything that we needed but we really spent all our time in the private and shared outdoor spaces. The views from the swimming pool were unparalleled. Gilly and Tim were fabulous hosts, full of ideas of where best to explore locally and all the necessary insider information re shopping, restaurants etc. They were discrete hosts but always willing to chat over a glass or two of wine. It was one of the most relaxing holidays that we have ever had.
