About Steve Franklin
We bought the cottage having spent many happy family holidays in the area. Recently we have fully renovated the cottage exposing a massive Inglenook fireplace complete with a bread oven and have installed a new Wood burning stove.
Steve Franklin purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Steve Franklin chose Cubert
The cottage is a second home rather than a commercial let so you will find more home comforts such as good books to read, board games and local walking guides to compliment the character accommodation.

Fantastic little cottage, everything you need for a base-camp from which to explore the surrounding
We stayed for a week at the cottage with our year old daughter, the pictures do not do the cottage and garden justice it is very well presented and has everything you need. The garden is a little bit away from the house so take a baby monitor if you want to have a baby and want to have evening bbqs. We loved it, will definitely be back! :)
The most quintessential English country cottage, complete with all mod cons. Great location and the village has everything you need if you don’t want to get in the car. Every room in the cottage is really comfy, beds and duvets plus settees. Bathroom and shower also fab with air cupboard to dry anything as needed. Kitchen fully equipped and the outside space is brill to enjoy and evening bbq. Lovely also to have no internet. Wouldn’t hesitate to go back.
