Charlie’s Cottage is a Grade-II* listed timber-framed black and white property (approx. 350-years old) with wonderful historical character mixed with modern luxury. The front door leads into the sitting room which has a wonderful cushioned window seat – a perfect spot to sit and read the paper or watch the world go by. The Georgian oak table seats 3 comfortably. There is wooden flooring throughout the ground floor, a two-seater sofa, occasional armchair, Smart TV, Bluetooth speaker, free Wi-Fi and broadband and USB charger sockets fitted in every room (ex. the bathroom). For the cooler nights there is wood-burning effect electric fire and all rooms have radiators. All rooms (bar the single bedroom) have original oak beams.
The sitting room leads onto a new well-equipped kitchen with ceramic hob, built in single oven, extractor hood, under-counter SMEG fridge (with ice box), built-in dishwasher and top of the range appliances – kettle, toaster, microwave and a Nespresso coffee machine (with capsules provided of course – you’re a guest!). There is a selection of glassware, crockery, Vera Wang cutlery, cookware and good quality saucepans. An iron and ironing board is available in the kitchen pantry, together with a mini freezer. (Sorry, no washing machine).
The oak stairs lead off from the sitting room – they are relatively steep and narrow with two turns. There are two bedrooms – one king sized bed (5ft wide, with king sized pillows) and one single bed, both have sprung mattresses and 100% cotton bedding and feather and down pillows and duvets for ultimate comfort and luxury, plus additional blankets, throws, hot water bottles and anti-allergy pillows located in the airing cupboard. Each bedroom has its own hairdryer too, so no need to pack your own. Both bedrooms have “wall” hanging space, with the addition of a large chest of drawers in the main bedroom and a wooden double valet stand. The single room has a small chest of drawers and two large concealed drawers which are built into the bed for additional storage space. Both bedrooms have a wall-mounted Smart TV.
There are towels in each bedroom and a hand towel in the bathroom which consists of a large walk-in shower with rainfall shower head, toilet, a beautiful traditional freestanding vanity unit with a large mirror, shaving mirror, double shaving socket (located on the inside right of the vanity unit) and a wall mounted heated towel rail.
There is a small enclosed courtyard garden with bistro table and chairs and garden lighting – perfect for alfresco dining if the weather permits or board games or the TV inside if it doesn’t! Short stays all year-round welcome – min. stay 2 nights.
Sorry, no smoking permitted (including vapour/e-cigarettes) and regrettably no children under the age of 10-years and no pets.
