Puddle Duck Cottage – Jemima’s Cottage

Sleeps 1-5 in two bedrooms with an open fire (logs and coals provided).

This popular, traditional self catering cottage is tucked away in the corner of the courtyard. From the back door you can watch the chickens and puddle ducks looking for something to eat. From the front door a narrow country lane leads to the stream. The back door enters from the courtyard into the kitchen and there is the following accommodation…

  • Small but well equipped kitchen including dishwasher, oven and microwave which leads to
  • Lounge/diner with TV/DVD player which overlooks the quiet country lane at the front of the property and contains probably the favourite feature of the cottage – the open fire in the local stone feature fireplace

  • Upstairs there are two bedrooms overlooking local gardens – one double bedroom and one with double and single beds and a large bathroom with shower over the bath.
  • Points to note: storage heaters throughout inclusive in rental charge as is all electricity. The stairs are quite steep but are wide with a good handrail so please check with us if this might be a concern. See Terms and Conditions for further points to note.
