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.

Guest Comment

We have had a fantastic time. You have obviously tried to make this a home from home and it has really worked. We arrived on the 1st night at 8pm and we all immediately felt cosy and relaxed. Jovi (3 1/2) went into every room and announced, ’This is nice!’ …Angelique (1 ½) also had a fabulous time shrieking to her heart’s content. Well done you have thought of everything, and we definitely want to visit again very soon. (PS) We too have stayed in many a holiday cottage and we love this one.
