Grey Cottage is a Georgian Gentleman's residence with a Victorian extension that has been converted into owners' accommodation. This has the advantage that chef, Julia, can provide meals to order by prior arrangement.
The guest accommodation is arranged;
The Blue Room has zip together twin beds which make a super king sized bed. It has an en-suite shower and toilet
The Pink Room has a standard double bed and has space for a cot if required or a child’s Z.bed, although this will make the room quite crowded. It has an en-suite shower and toilet
The Yellow Room is a twin room with zip together beds which make a 5ft. double. It will use the main bathroom facilities.
There is space for a child’s Z.bed or a cot if required.
All bed linen and towels will be provided. We need to know in advance how you would like the zip together beds arranged
The Bathroom If you prefer a bath rather than a shower, the main bathroom has a 6ft roll top bath and is a wonderful place for pampering and diy spa treatments!.
The 32ft main sitting room has 2 sofas and 2 upholstered chairs around the log burner. We have an upright piano kept in reasonable tune. There is a dining area that can comfortably seat 8 people.
The Blue sitting room is an ideal space for a little peace and quiet or to give kids and teenagers a space of their own. It has a daybed which extends to a comfortable 5ft double.
The Kitchen has all essential kit, 5 burner range ceramic cooker with double oven and grill, dishwasher, fridge with small freezer all around a central oatmeal granite work surface with a couple of bar stools. There is a tumble dryer available in the cloakroom area.
The conservatory is full of plants and has an additional dining area, great for breakfast.
Grey cottage has TV (free sat) with DVD, a music system with i.pod connection, a selection of board games and kid’s toys and plenty of books and magazines. The house has wifi broadband available in most rooms, but limited mobile signal.
The garden is terraced with slate steps between the levels. Guests have the use of a small level lawn with extensive views down the wooded valley and a raised patio area. There is garden furniture for dining and relaxing. Parking for three cars
Here at Grey cottage you’ll be sharing with badgers, whose innumerable trails criss-cross the grounds, and tawny owls, if you are here in the early summer, teaching their young to fly. Lee is privileged to host a large colony of rooks, partly in the grounds of Grey Cottage, whose twilight circuits before settling down (no one knows quite why they do it) create an astonishing sight – and sound. Be nice to the rooks as they are the farmers’ friends, gobbling up pests from the fields in their forays for food!
We garden for wildlife and have a small pond with newts, a breeding ground for frogs and toads as well as dragon flies
Slow worms and lizards sun themselves on the drystone walls in the garden.
