About Penny Hornsey
Our family, with 2 Golden Retrievers, moved to Steeple Ashton in 1976 and now we really can't imagine living anywhere else. In the past we had shops in Bath and Bradford on Avon selling early antique country furniture and offering interior design advice. Hence the antiques and co-ordinated interior at Coachmans Cottage.
Penny Hornsey purchased this cottage in 1986
Why Penny Hornsey chose Steeple Ashton
Coachmans Cottage was purchased in 1986 for my Grandmother. . She spent 6 very happy years living here. Now we would not want to part with the cottage next door, it is too much a part of our lives, and meeting all of the special guests that come to stay over the years is such an added bonus.
What makes this cottage unique
Coachmans Cottage is situated in the heart of this beautiful, award winning, conservation village, on a quiet lane just off the village green. The Longs Arms pub, serves good food. Pick up hot croissants for breakfast and a daily paper from the Award Winning village shop, both are only 100/200 metres away. St Marys Church is a short stroll in the opposite direction. The friendly villagers make visitors very welcome and as a past guest wrote in the Visitor Book 'like Midsummer without the murder'! For those who enjoy to walk the 'Friends of Steeple Ashton' have compiled a number of walks starting from St Marys church, ranging from 2 to 8 miles, copies are in the cottage for guests use.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a lovely week at Coachmans Cottage in April. It is an easy drive from Heathrow and a great place to recover from 8 hours jet lag after flying from western Canada! The cottage is peaceful, a short stroll from the shop and the pub, has nice walks from the door, and is perfectly located for visits to the many nearby gardens, cathedrals, and delightful villages. The cottage is very comfortable, clean, and well-equipped. Penny, the owner,is very helpful, and we were grateful for the delicious welcome tea. We're looking forward to another stay on our next visit to the UK!
Response: It was a great pleasure meeting you both and so pleased that all was well received, including the tea tray. We look forward to welcoming you back at a future date. Best, Penny
