No electricity. Enjoy Candlelit evenings, in off grid comfort - Think Little Red Riding Hoods Grandmothers cottage with 30 acres of woodland estate and lakes to play in. Hammocks, ping pong, fishing, den building.
Cook a local steak on the firepit while watching the stars. Inside light the candles and wood burner to heat radiators and hot water for the big roll top bath.
Well behaved dogs welcome (£20)
Sorry not suitable for young children due to fire risk and steep stairs.
The cottage is furnished with loved pieces of furniture and antique china. It looks stunning lit up in candlelight and we have been selected as a special place to stay by Alistair Sawdays.
A cosy double bedroom upstairs, a big bathroom with roll top bath, sink and proper wc. Then a large bedroom with two single beds and modesty screen and comfortable chairs, this room can double up as a living room. Downstairs there's a dining area and sofa and a kitchen with woodburner, gas cooker, small cooler and table.
The daffodills and bluebell dell are stunning in the spring, then the rhododendrons in May in full summer everything is lush. Come and fish, spot the badgers, play ping pong and lounge in the hammocks, before toasting marshmallows in the firepit.
30 acres of woodland, two lakes, cycle routes
Motor bikes welcome
