The Cottage is small but perfectly formed. Newly refurbished, it has witnessed much over the years, including the village’s annual Horn Dance. This quirky village festival (think morris dancing pub-crawl with antlers) reportedly goes back over 800 years.
Inspired by the stags in the horn dance, the cottage décor is rustic and natural. The characterful sitting room has a wood-burning stove in a brick fireplace, beamed ceilings and parquet floor, plus squishy sofas and plenty of cosy cushions and throws. However, it’s double glazed so no draughty old windows.
The cute kitchen is modern, with a travertine tiled floor which is – gasp! – underheated, meaning ten toasty toes when you make your morning tea. A welcome hamper of local goodies will await you on arrival, and there is a herb garden outside the back door.
Upstairs there are two pretty bedrooms, both with cast iron feature fireplaces (so no arguing), and one with an en-suite loo. Downstairs there is a brand new shower room and loo. Egyptian cotton linen and fluffy towels are supplied.
