Further details indoors:
This is a 400 hundred year old cottage, so although it does sleep 4 it is really idea for 2, as these cottages are small but cosy...We offer a dongal for Internet access upon request.
Further details outdoors:
The Garden is a good size with small cottage garden to rear with climbing Roses around the door and a real spring. At the bottom of the Garden is a larger private garden shared with Butlers Cottage next door, with Fruit trees and Veg as well as a charming cottage Garden with seating areas to read, enjoy the sun or take breakfast.
Parking is at the side of the cottages.
Please note you pay £150 to book the cottage, with the full holiday cost due 4 weeks before you arrive. The £150 is returned to you 7 days after your departure. Sadly we have had to bring in this charge due to the large number of items that seem to walk each year.. We work hard to insure our Cottages have more than they need so your stay is more comfortable whatever the weather.Pets when allowed are charged at £30 per week to cover cost of steam cleaning, as some clients do not like to rent where pets have stayed.
Changeover day is 11am Friday to move out, and after 2pm to move in, out of Peak season we are more flexible on times, days and dates.We have a small water well in the Garden, and the Cottage as small, but steep staircase access hence the Children safety concerns.

We arrived at Butler's cottage to find it had been double booked and someone was already there. We were offered Toby's Retreat instead as that seemed to be free but the key holder... more
15 Oct 2011
The state of the house was terrible - dust everywhere, cobwebs, dog hairs – we spent the morning after our arrival cleaning the house!
Internet WIFI access was offered by a neighbour and was possible only in the garden!
We had no linen changed for the whole period we were there and no cleaning: the cleaning lady turned up after 2 weeks and we sent her away having, again, cleaned the house ourselves. Moreover, I was charged the cost of a TV wall bracket that I did not break (for which I wasn't even sent the receipt so I don't know if i was overcharged!)
