The cottage is separate from the main house, so guests are completely private. It features 2 bedrooms, one of which is a huge loft room, a pristinely appointed full bathroom, small fully fitted kitchen and cosy lounge area. It also has its own private patio. Covered parking near the door makes it perfect for complete privacy, if required.
The property offers a regular sized pool, large lawn and an expansive view over the Prestbury valley.
We built the cottage to our own taste and standards, with the idea of eventually living in it when retirement comes knocking.
We love wood, hence the solid wood staircase and the loft room floor. We both love an attractive bathroom, so we spent a bit of extra time designing it.
And we (I) love cooking, so the kitchen had to be more than just a kitchenette... :-)
Guests have exclusive use of the cottage and its patio, so they can be perfectly private if they like. There is a portable braai on the patio as well.
Guests can also use the pool and the main patio with built-in braai facilities - just give us a heads-up!
Interaction with guests
I work from home, so I'm around most of the day, unless I'm meeting with clients. We want guests to feel at home and comfortable to ask anything!
Other things to note
We are animal lovers and have two large Labs. They are quite protective over the property, but once you're in, they will love and protect you as well.
They occasionally make a run for the open gate, so we ask that guests just keep an eye out for them when opening and closing the gate.
We ask that guests give them as much love as they want, but please don't feed them scraps or snacks - we're trying to get the big one to lose some weight!
We provide a light breakfast of snack yoghurts, cereal and fresh fruit. A tea / coffee station is also provided, with milk in the fridge.
Daily "clean-up" can be arranged at a small additional fee.
- No pets please. We have two large dogs who love people, but may hurt other animals. No smoking, excessive drinking or drugs please. We are in a quiet neighbourhood, surrounded by elderly neighbours. Whilst we love to be social, we are not loud and respect our community values.
