Quiet & relaxing, perfectly positioned for exploring the Heritage coast (and with an eclectic book collection!)
"The cottage has been everything we could possibly have wanted in a holiday retreat - warm, comfortable, divinely pretty and romantic!"

Recently refurbished, with new kitchen and new double glazed windows.
Upstairs is the large, light, south facing bedroom with king size bed, armchairs and a coffee table. There is a TV with DVD player and a selection of DVDs. The bathroom is adjacent with a bath and a shower.
Downstairs is the newly fully fitted kitchen/living/dining room with TV. It is a small room but sunny in summer and cosy in winter. There is a sofa bed for the occasional guest(s). (£15 for linen or bring your own)
The kitchen has an oven, microwave and a 4 ring hob with cover which acts as a splashback when open. There is also a larder fridge, a freezer, a toaster and, of course, a kettle.
There is a downstairs WC.
The cottage has oil fired central heating.
Immediately outside is a south facing terrace with a large table and an electric awning. If you have friends/family in the area you can entertain up to 10. The awning can act as a sunshade or an umbrella so even if it is drizzling it is still possible to be outside. It's an extra room!
There is parking for one car.
You have an exclusive private garden area - south-west facing, with a table and chairs and 2 "rocking loungers" ideal for relaxing and sunbathing - see picture. The whole garden, of which this is part, is designed mainly for wildlife - shrubs, trees and many scented hip bearing roses.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
We generally try to be around to greet our guests and make sure they know where everything is. We are always happy to have a chat but we respect our guests privacy and leave them alone to enjoy their holiday.
As you would expect we provide bed linen and towels. There are herbs you can pick in the garden. We provide condiments, tea and coffee and cleaning materials.
There are two doors (as in double thickness) separating the end cottage from the rest of the house and upstairs there is a store room next to the bedroom so noise intrusion from the rest of the house is not a problem.
For the most part our guests appreciate how quiet it is but occasionally we have a problem on Sundays. Between 10am to 3pm on Sundays there is a motocross track about half a mile away. If the wind is in the wrong direction then it can be surprisingly and irritatingly loud in the garden. Our advice is to either go out or stay indoors! Some Sundays you wouldn't know it was there. We haven't had any complaints to date but it is only fair to warn you.
Please no smoking indoors.
Well behaved dogs are welcome but the accommodation is really not big enough for very large dogs. If you bring a dog(s) we assume you are responsible poop a scoopers, and that you will bring appropriate blankets to cover the furniture if they are used to sitting on furniture. There is a resident cat, so cat chasing dogs are not welcome!
