From the owner

A tasteful, conversion of an outbuilding “where the cider mill donkey once lived”.

Cosy wood burner & views from every window.

Detached, clean & comfortable private escape for you to unwind & enjoy the views over an old perry pear orchard/field managed for wildlife.

Neighbourhood of similar smallholdings & valley farmland with direct access to forest walks & perfect for stargazing.

Friendly sheep maybe grazing in the field nearby.

Covid Enhanced Clean

Literally just off the beaten track, a privately located & slightly elevated detached cottage arranged on one level and with countryside views from every window.

We live further along the track and are on hand to help but equally we’re respectful of your privacy allowing you to completely relax and unwind.

Open-plan living area with a well equipped modern kitchen area. Patio doors plus full length windows to take advantage of the far reaching countryside views & for wildlife watching.

The bedroom has a king-size bed, with a quality feather-effect duvet & pillows (suitable for vegans).

There are thick curtains for a good nights sleep, though if left open, you may watch the sunrise over the valley directly from your bed.

Modern en-suite shower room with plentiful hot water & good water pressure.


A well insulated cottage for winter with modern electric radiators plus a cosy real wood burner. Snuggle up in front of the fire and enjoy the views.


Wake to the sound of birdsong & take short stroll from the cottage & you’re in beech woodlands carpeted with scented bluebells & natural babbling springs.


Open the patio doors in the living area to make the most of the gentle valley breeze and enjoy the views. Sit outside at night & stargaze.


Experience the beautiful displays of autumnal leaf colour in the adjacent woods & forage for chestnuts.

Relaxing private garden area to the front of the cottage that overlooks a field & old orchard and down to a tree-lined stream with countryside beyond.

Garden bench on a grassy lawn for your morning coffee or to watch the sunrise.

Bistro set on a paved area that benefits from the late afternoon/early evening sun.

The land is primarily managed for wildlife.

Buzzards fly above along the woodland edge, green woodpeckers forage the field, squirrels climb along trees by the stream. At night you may hear the owls. A badger will often pass by on its evening route (dependant on the time of year).

A small herd of family owned friendly Jacob sheep (some have been hand reared) are usually in the field next to the cottage. They rotationally graze with other neighbours so we can’t always guarantee they’ll be there.

Sorry no dogs due to the proximity of the livestock.


- The bathroom is a modern shower room with a large corner shower with plentiful hot water & good water pressure (no bath).

- TV with built in DVD player

- Drawer full of board games, playing cards, DVDs etc.

- Books, local maps and guides

- Cafetiere (no coffee maker)

- Microwave, double oven & grill, dishwasher, washer/dryer, freestanding fridge/freezer.

- Blankets for outdoor use in the evenings should you wish to sit outside longer to watch the wildlife and stargaze (kept in the monks bench).

- Cosy real wood burner, first basket of logs free of charge. Extra baskets of logs - £5 per basket.

Please note the soap provided in the shower room and kitchen is liquid hand soap.... not the solid bar variety.

We have consistent 5 star reviews for our cleaning standards.

A full Covid-19 Risk Assessment has been undertaken & associated enhanced cleaning is undertaken between every booking.
