From village post office to bakery and now holiday home this 17th century, Grade II listed, thatched cottage is steeped in history. With walls half a metre thick and window seats, exposed beams, old oak doors and floors and an inglenook fireplace, Tea Cosy Cottage is delightful. Much furniture has been carved from solid wood by a local craftsman. Full oil central heating provides for modern comfort whilst the log burning stove in the sitting room adds to the cosy, relaxed atmosphere. The original staircase is a lovely feature but is unsuitable for toddlers, the elderly and infirm. Very tall potential visitors might also want to consider the low doorway into Bedroom 1!

One step up from the kitchen in to the:
A gorgeous room, wonderfully cosy with a large inglenook fireplace containing a salt drying box and wooden seat on one side. A large basket of logs is supplied for the wood-burning stove - just help yourself from the large log pile outside when you need some more. Two comfortable two seater sofas. The window seat, television table and coffee table have all been carved by a local craftsman from solid wood. Flat screen television with freeview and DVD.
Stairs lead from this room to the landing upstairs. The stairs are a lovely feature of this old cottage but would not be suitable for the elderly, toddlers or infirm. They are steep, on a bend, narrow and all of different height treads. Throughout the upstairs there are oak floors.
Part of the charm and intriguing character of this cottage is that it retains original features, so when you step into this room remember to duck under the low doorway! The old painted brick chimney breast faces you as you enter. This is a light room with windows on two sides. Double bed (4’6”wide). Rugs on the wooden floors (not in picture). Antique rocking chair, chest of drawers and wardrobe.
This is a small but delightful room where bespoke beds have been cleverly made by a local craftsman of solid wood. Two 2’6” wide single beds. Walk-in cupboard with shelf and hanging space for clothes.
Bath, fitted with folding shower screen with electric shower over bath. Basin, WC. Shaver point.
