Holly Cottage – is ideal for a family of four, the second double bedroom, with (adult sized bunk beds) being more suitable for children. A sofa bed in the living room is available for occasional use for two more. Downstairs is an open living/dining room with a cosy wood burning stove, digital TV (32″ LED screen) DVD & CD players and hi-fi.
A library for varied reading, games, local maps and guides and a selection of popular films on video; CDs and audio tapes of music. We have a wireless network for Broadband/Internet connection, which you may access with a wi-fi aerial on your laptop. This leads into a furnished south-west facing conservatory, opening into a totally enclosed large patio garden for barbecue, outdoor dining or reclining. From the patio there is access to a large lawn. A ring binder has details of over 60 places to visit.

The conservatory is popular as a second living room, receiving sun from breakfast to sunset, its double glazing and radiators giving winter warmth. French doors open out to the patio, equipped with table & chairs for outdoor meals, lounging chairs and a barbecue; access also to a large lawn. The murmur of the Wellow Brook close by provides a relaxing backdrop. The stream is clean and safe for children’s paddling.

The newly-fitted kitchen has a clothes washing machine, microwave, fridge/freezer and electric cooker. The shower room and toilet are on the ground floor.

The Retreat – This is a newly renovated self-catering maisonette on the other side of a ¾ acre organic garden to Holly Cottage. It is ideal for two people (it has been called “a love-nest for two”), and a comfortable sofa-bed in the living room can accommodate one more for occasional use. Popular for short breaks.

The Retreat has a similar idyllic setting to Holly Cottage – by the stream, at the edge of the unspoilt the garden and off-road parking space for one car. Owing to the steep garden, only children six and over may be accommodated.
