The owners Alan and Diana, bought the property in 2009. Originally two quarrymen's cottages for the nearby manganese quarry (now a lake), it required extensive renovation and rebuilding in parts. Alan spent five years renovating it, using reclaimed products wherever possible.
Love-Lee cottage, an annexe to the main house was originally thought to be a scullery and pig sty, but research has uncovered that the 'pig-sty' was in fact a large water tank, which would have held water, pumped up from the river.
This has been renovated to provide a cosy, unusual, rustic retreat, with its own private entrance and all the necessary features of modern living to ensure a comfortable stay. The quirky mezzanine bedroom, kitchen, and even the bed itself has been hand crafted with reclaimed wood from the cottage and surrounding area, to offer a unique and characterful space.
Dog friendly, rustic, characterful, self-catering property. Self-contained, cosy annexe to main cottage, with private entrance. Set in an acre of woodland garden, on a riverbank.

We are very happy to assist in any way we can to help you enjoy your stay, but otherwise will leave you in peace, to enjoy the tranquility.
We are dog-friendly, but dogs need to be well-behaved, as they may come across a very soppy labradoodle, a cat and free-range chickens within the grounds!
No smoking in cottage.
