Manor Holding Cottage

The Cottage is a Grade II Listed, half timbered, Jacobean cottage farmhouse, dating from circa 1680.

The south facing cottage is naturally warm and full of sunlight in winter, but cool in summer (up to 7 degrees Celsius cooler than outside on a hot day). Inside, the exposed beams, already ancient when incorporated second hand into the cottage in the 1680s, are complimented by warm polished terracotta paving slabs downstairs and creaky oak floors upstairs

It has a separate, enclosed and sheltered front garden with two lawns, embracing an intimate, suntrap patio, as well as shady seating arbours for hotter days. 

There are two bedrooms on the first floor (1 Super King sized double and 1 twin).  Opening off the entrance hall downstairs there are: a cozy snug or study with WIFI, CD player and TV point, a larger sitting/dining room with DVD/TV and super efficient wood burning stove, and an understair cupboard crammed with useful things, including garden games equipment.

The chest of drawers in the entrance hall contains well organised and comprehensive literature on places to visit and things to do, together with games and toys for children.

The kitchen/scullery opens off the dining room, and is comprehensively equipped with double fan assisted ovens, 4 burner gas hob, multi speed fan extractor hood with high intensity lighting, capacious fridge and freezer, washing machine, double sink and drainers, microwave, toaster and hot beverage station.  The traditional stone bread oven is no longer in use, but makes a convenient wine cellar.  The kitchen is furnished with ample pots, pans, and cooking tools of all sorts for baking, roasting, stewing, steaming, poaching, frying, etc.

Smoking:  We ask that guests refrain from smoking inside the house.
