After purchasing Water Meadows Cottage in 2004 we spent the following three years extending and renovating the property to provide tastefully decorated and well furnished holiday accommodation for our guests. The venture has proved a huge success and we have welcomed guests from all over the UK and abroad. Building on our reputation the cottage now achieves full occupancy throughout the summer months and is also very popular for low season breaks.
In order to meet demand we began work on the Old Coach House in 2013. This conversion has been carried out to the same high standard with no compromise on quality of workmanship or furnishings. We welcomed our first guests in June 2014 and quickly became fully booked through to October. The cottage was awarded 4 stars by Visit England only missing 5 stars due to it having a shower instead of a bath. However due to the exeptional standard of accommodation it was awarded their coveted Gold Award.

“My owners love and welcome dogs free of charge. There's no set limit on numbers, just let them know how many and what breed when booking so they can advise if the accommodation is suitable for your needs. Carpets are deep cleaned on a regular basis to keep everything fresh and odour free for all of our guests. The gardens are secure, and there are lots of lovely walks on our doorstep. They even provide doggy towels and treats, please visit our Dogs page to see what else is provided."
