Enjoy a romantic retreat or family getaway and experience the rustic ambience, warming wood burner and lovely cottage garden at this beautiful retreat.

Step into this inviting home, where history and contemporary style intertwine.

The kitchen/diner, offering dual aspect views of the front drive and rear gardens, sets the stage for memorable meals and shared moments. Ascend the steep staircase to discover a king-size bedroom with an iron bedstead, a single room with a wooden bedstead, and a family bathroom featuring a freestanding roll-top bath.

Very easy to book. Cottage was very good. Although parts date back to the fifteenth century it was very comfortable and equipped with everything you could need. Excellent wood burner and underfloor heating when it turned cold. Close to the shop in the lovely village of Metfield. The owner Frannie was very helpful and was always available to make suRead morere we had everything we needed. Hide
