Dating back to the early 1800s, The Kiln in Mendham along with its neighbouring cottage The Golden Cross are Grade II listed cottages situated within the owners grounds which have been cleverly converted into holiday accommodation. The Kiln is a single storey cottage accommodating two guests in the most comfortable surroundings with everything you could need for a self-catering break on hand.

This cosy haven is accessed by French doors from the front patio area which lead into the open plan room consisting of your living space, dining area and kitchen. There’s wood flooring throughout and character ceiling beams tower above. This area is perfect for your pet to curl up and enjoy your company whether you’re dining, relaxing or cooking up a feast. This area creates a feeling of ease with its open plan layout.

The Kiln is a lovely abode for couples of all ages with its king size bedroom and En-Suite shower room with large shower cubicle. The bedroom has built-in wood wardrobes for storage and retains its character charm with further beams in the vaulted ceiling.

When the sun is shining why not sit out in the small, enclosed patio area private to the cottage. Alternatively guests can take advantage of the owner’s garden on site.
