Well Cottage is a bright and airy one-bedroom self-catering cottage all on one level, and with the addition of a bed settee in the sitting room it can accommodate up to 4 guests. The property is surprisingly spacious with a triple aspect kitchen living and dining area, all overlooking the private courtyard and garden to the front of the cottage.
Well Cottage was formerly a well house and pump room in the 1900 Century, and sits above a 200′ capped well, hence its name. If you look at the photos of the cottage you will be able to see photos taken in 1890, 1930 and 1955 of the cottage as it was then.
Well Cottage has a fully equipped kitchen with granite work surfaces, an electric cooker, hob and oven, a refrigerator with freezer box, a microwave, toaster and washer/dryer making the property perfect for any length of stay. The sitting room also has a new flat screen 32 inch smart tv with free view and an integrated dvd player.
The bedroom, directly off the sitting room has panelling in a gentle pale green on two of its walls, a king size bed with a topper for extra comfort and lots of storage. This was the former pump room to the well house so it doesn’t have any windows. However, it remains lovely and cool due to the new positive venting system which constantly brings in fresh air from outside. The door has even been removed and replaced with a heavy curtain for privacy, allowing fresh air to easily circulate encouraging a relaxing sleep. And just to make sure the additional guests don’t feel left out, the bed-settee also has its own mattress topper.
The en suite shower room off of the bedroom has just been refurbished. It’s now equipped with a large walk in shower, anti slip flooring, a large mirror with surrounding lights, new ceiling spotlights, and a new toilet which looks more like a piece of art.
Finally, the seating area outside the cottage is perfect for relaxing or alfresco dining, and there is guaranteed parking next to the cottage to make your stay even more enjoyable.
For guests who stay at Christmas, we decorate the property before you arrive, so you can enjoy that lovely Christmassy feel as soon as you get here.
