Surrounded by fields and parkland with wonderful views towards Fritton Lake, Decoy Cottage is one of our refurbished farm cottages. The self-catering cottages are ideal for both short breaks and longer stays. We have tried to keep the farming traditional alive with jersey cows from our raw milk dairy, ponies in the stables and our chickens busy laying eggs for the Fritton Arms.
Decoy Cottage has a modern kitchen with an elegant dining room, cosy living room with a wood burner and door out to the garden. Outside there is ample parking for up to three cars, with a path running down to the front door. At the back of the property there is a peaceful private garden with a wicker fence for extra privacy. The cottage is pet friendly so you can bring your dog on holiday too. It also benefits from WiFi access.
The front door opens into a hall from which you access the kitchen and bathroom. The bathroom has a large bath with shower attachment, WC and hand basin. The well equipped kitchen faces the front of the property and has a beautiful butler's sink under the window, electric oven, ceramic hob, extractor fan and an under the counter fridge with freezer compartment.
Through the kitchen you get to the heart of the cottage. A fully carpeted dining room with circular table and four chairs (there are three more chairs upstairs in the bedrooms of required). From the dining room there are stairs up to the first floor and a small hallway with doors to the living room and the back garden.
The living room overlooks the garden and fields beyond. The bare wood floors are partially covered with a cow hide rug. The room is sumptuously furnished in a contemporary style with deep sofa, two velvet chairs, large footstool, side table and wall mounted TV.
Carpet runs up the stairs and through the first floor landing, where you will find two king size bedrooms and a bunk bed room.
The master bedroom is a sunny room with field views. The guest room is at the front of the cottage and has a stylish double bed. The third bedroom is accessed through the guest room and has bunk beds.
The property is within easy walking distance of Fritton Lake which makes a great base for walking and outdoor activities. Between April and October there are lots of activities in and around the lake for you to enjoy during your stay; including open water swimming, lakeside pony rides, archery, raft building, canoeing/kayaking and cycle hire to name a few.
The popular Fritton Arms Hotel with its restaurant and bar is within easy reach. Here the chefs create delicious seasonal menus and it is open daily for breakfast, morning coffee, lunch and evening meals. It’s the perfect place for a bite of lunch, dinner or drinks on the terrace in the summer.
Please note each retreat is thoroughly inspected before and after new guests arrive, and if any damages have been incurred to the property during your stay, we reserve the right to take up to £60 to cover these. This sum will be charged to the card number which was supplied for payment, and after consultation with the guest. This will take place within 24 hours of checking the property.
