This three bedroom country retreat can accommodate up to six guests, and its rustic charm and open-plan living area, combined with courtyard garden and breath-taking countryside views, make it the perfect holiday cottage for groups of friends, professionals, or families alike.

Decorated to a high standard throughout this single-storey cottage offers an open-plan layout comprising of living, dining and kitchen areas. The living area features chunky wooden English furniture and deep, sumptuous sofas and armchairs for that cosy country feel. The exposed dark wood beams perfectly punctuate the soft creams and natural tones of the décor, all highlighted by subtle accents of the palest pink and duck egg blue. This beautifully traditional room is equipped with all the modern comforts you could wish for; a 55” Smart TV with Amazon Prime, Netflix and Now TV available, as well as Sky TV accessible through the ultra fast WiFi connections. All to ensure that everyone’s entertainment needs are met.

Through to the kitchen area and the rustic charm of Lily Cottage continues. This area maintains that English country feel with warm wooden furniture, and tones of white and cream with splashes of duck-egg blue and crimson. Equipped with an electric AGA and a wood burning stove, as well as fridge freezer and ice machine, you’ll have all the ingredients for fine dining and entertaining.

On to the bedrooms and the natural toned décor accented with subtle touches of colour is carried through. Comprising of a master bedroom with king size double bed, a standard twin room, and a twin room containing adult bunk beds, each bedroom is light, airy, and equipped with a variety of books for both adults and children to enjoy. The exposed wooden beams combined with fresh white linen and paintwork adds to the country farmhouse feel for a luxurious and tranquil stay.

Lily Cottage features a large beautifully decorated bathroom, with both a bathtub and shower as well as a separate shower cubicle. The beams in this room are also offset by the natural toned flooring and clean white paintwork and suite. The bathroom is equipped with a selection of Faith In Nature products for you to indulge in and enjoy.

Your luxury country cottage experience doesn’t end indoors thanks to the stunning shared courtyard garden featuring a jacuzzi hot tub. There’s also a wendy house full of toys for the kids to enjoy, as well as a BBQ area for some summer al fresco dining! In the warmer months table tennis is available, and in the corner of the courtyard garden you’ll find a small farm shop selling fresh local produce.
