From the owner

This charming 3 bed cottage dates back to the 16c. Grade 2 listed, Pond Cottage has been carefully renovated to provide a comfortable and well equipped holiday home that retains much of its' charm and character. There are stunning views over open countryside. The cottage is peacefully situated at the end of a small unmade road, but within walking distance of village amenities.

The living room is comfortably furnished with two sofas, a dining table and chairs for 4-6 people, television with 'free to view' channels, also a DVD and Video player and a plentiful supply of books, board games and videos, CD's and DVD's. WiFi is available free of charge. The kitchen is well equipped with double oven electric cooker and hob, dishwasher, washing machine, kettle, toaster, coffee maker, microwave, slow cooker, halogen cooker, mini food mixer, liquidiser, coffee grinder, iron and ironing board. The bathroom is on the ground floor and comprises bath with shower over and shower screen, low level WC and wash hand basin. There is a small utility room with washing machine, but no tumble dryer. There is a linen line in the garden..

Upstairs 3 bedrooms lead off the landing, a double with 5' bed and two other bedrooms one having a full sized double bed and the other a 4' double. Each of the latter two rooms is fairly small and therefore listed as single. All bedrooms have hanging space and drawers for storage, plus bedside lights. The house is heated by night storage heaters. The house is let for a maximum of 4 people, but the bedrooms allow for some flexibility and could suit 2 couples, 3 single people or a family of 4.

The good sized garden has an unfenced pond, hence no children under 10. The garden table, chairs and barbecue are kept in a garden storage box to the left of the kitchen window. We have a local gardener who calls regularly to cut the grass. He tries always to do this on change over days, however, the weather and other commitments don't always make this possible. He would usually only be at the cottage for around an hour during the afternoon when the grass is more likely to be dry and this is usually around once every two weeks. There is good off road parking. Although this is a 'no smoking' property you are welcome to smoke in the garden.

A maximum of two well behaved dogs, minimum age 2 years are welcome, but we must ask you to take into consideration that the garden is not dog proof and so it's important that your pet isn't the sort to stray. We are unable to accommodate visiting cats. Your pet may also like to swim in the pond which could result in the need to dry him/her before coming back indoors. There are 4 houses on the other side of the lane to Pond Cottage. Although they are on the other side of the lane, until the hedge around the garden of Pond Cottage has grown a little more, the garden is a little overlooked from their kitchen windows which are at the front. Currently the hedge is a little over 1.2 metre high. At the bottom of the garden you look out over open fields.Check in time is 17:00 hours and check out time is 13:00 hours. Please check with the owner to see if there can be flexibility
