The finer details

 

BOOT ROOM

space for muddy boots, wet brollies and sandy towels! This useful entrance at the rear of the cottage is essential after exploring the Devon countryside and local beaches. Includes a utility area with washing machine and traditional butler sink and a separate WC.

KITCHEN DINING ROOM

a social space with everything you need to cook up a feast for the family, or a romantic meal for two. Includes a full size dishwasher, oven, microwave and a Nespresso machine

LOUNGE

the spacious but cosy lounge is the perfect place to relax after a day of exploring. A traditional gas burning stove is perfect all year round and there's a stack of games for rainy days and romantic evenings. There's a 42" smart tv for movie night or chill out listening to some jazz on the vintage style record player

MASTER SUITE

original quarrelled windows with views across Cockington Court grounds, exposed beams and an enormous freestanding tub, the master bedroom is a seriously romantic space to unwind. In addition to the roll top bath, the double bedroom has a private ensuite shower room with marble tiles and exposed beams

SECOND BEDROOM

slightly smaller, but no less luxurious, this double bedroom boasts exposed beams, a gorgeous bespoke William Morris bed and a private ensuite shower room

OUTSIDE

soak away the city stress in the bubbling hot tub, or relax and cosy up beneath the stars. The mature gardens are the perfect place for long summer evenings and a glass of fizz

Other things to note

 

PET FRIENDLY

dogs are welcome at no extra charge

FAMILY FRIENDLY

the cottage has one high chair and one travel cot- bedding is not provided for the travel cot

PARKING

free parking is available for 2 cars but vehicles must be registered at least 48 hours before arrival

GARDEN

there is fencing around the back and one side of the cottage where the hot tub is located, but the front and side which backs on to Cockington Court park is surrounded by a hedge and/or vegetation. Although it’s fairly dense we can’t be certain that a small dog wouldn’t find a way through this area!

 

HOT TUB

the hot tub is available year round but please note the hot tub is drained and refilled after each guest for hygiene and safety, this means the hot tub may not be at the recommended 36*c temperature at time of check- in and may take some time to heat fully

 

NO SMOKING

absolutely no smoking in the cottage or in the gardens due to the delicate thatch

GUEST ACCESS

guests enjoy access to the whole cottage privately

tea, coffee, sugar, linen, towels, toiletries, toilet roll, cleaning equipment
