4 Star- Holiday Cottage- Sleeps 6

Built around 1850, the beautifully restored Gardeners Cottage holiday property was once home to the Head Gardener of the Whittern Estate. Backing onto a lovely and well-protected courtyard, it is historic, stylishly decorated and well proportioned: the ideal holiday cottage for a family or a cosy couple's hideaway . The property sits proudly in large open gardens of its own, next to the kitchen garden with its original eighteenth-century red brick walls.  

The family sized accommodation at Gardeners Cottage is very well laid out and all the decor and furniture is designer orientated. The rear entrance meanders through an eclectic courtyard, entering straight into the fully fitted kitchen (off which there is a utility room and a large  shower and  toilet). The dining room is adjacent to the kitchen and will seat up to 10 around a large vintage table. The sitting room is the other side of the front entrance and porch area and has comfortable sofas, armchairs and a delightful wood-burner.

Upstairs, Bedroom 1 has a kingsize bed and a vanity unit in the room; Bedroom 2 has a king size bed and french style sink, and Bedroom 3 provides twin accommodation. The main family sized bathroom has a large enamel bath, basin and toilet.
