The holiday cottages mix ancient and modern to create a vibe which feels cool and contemporary. Both have an abundance of exposed raw oak timbers and wide floorboards. There is lovely light through largely 17th century windows and the lime plastered walls are finished in a palette of Farrow and Ball whites to complement the taupes, greys and chocolate of the timbers and floors.

Cool bathrooms have fittings from Bette and Bathstore whilst the kitchens offer every convenience including double oven, halogen hob, microwave, panini maker, juicer, fridge-freezer and dishwasher. Guests are welcome to use the washing machine and tumble dryer provided in each cottage, though city dwellers may enjoy the simple luxury of line-dried laundry ...!

Beds and pillows are high quality, bed linen and towels are of pure Egyptian cotton, crockery, cutlery, glasses and cookware are plentiful and pleasing. There is wifi broadband, central heating for cooler days and fans for hot summer nights. Books, maps and games are all provided, as are basic provisions and a bottle of wine to welcome you. Outside, each cottage has a a pretty, private garden and patio with dining furniture and a barbeque, whilst the wild flower meadow with wildlife pond, bike store, drive and parking areas bordered by hedges and a tributary of the River Yox are shared. Views are either rural or of the church and village. If rented as a pair the cottages will accommodate 10 very comfortably, making them perfect for a group of friends or a family get-together.

 

 

White Sheep Cottage

The larger cottage, White Sheep, offers extremely spacious holiday accommodation for six. Upstairs are three bedrooms. Two have king sized beds and generous ensuite shower rooms, whilst the third with two single beds, is very cute and cosy. It uses the large family bathroom which has a double ended tub.

Downstairs is a huge kitchen with inglenook fireplace, central island, squishy white leather sofa and fabulous 16th century panelling. Opposite is the dining room, low ceilinged and intimate, and beyond is the triple aspect sitting room. French windows open to the terrace and South and West facing garden, which is fenced to make it safe for small children.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

Black Sheep Cottage

Black Sheep Cottage is the smaller of the two. It accommodates four, in two good sized and very charming bedrooms which share a pretty, timbered bathroom. The porch/boot room opens to a comfortable sitting room with fireplace, TV/DVD player and squashy leather sofas. There is a separate study with hifi and a writing desk, and a stylish eat-in kitchen. The sunny South and East facing courtyard garden has a table and chairs and a small barbeque. The steep and winding original staircase is charming but might make Black Sheep challenging for small children or those of limited mobility.
