About this cottage

As you pull into the driveway alongside the old cream stone farmhouse, Little Coach House is on your left-hand side. Beyond lie pretty gardens and an orchard, and then the open countryside. This is a lovely, rural setting where you are surrounded by countryside yet have a wealth of attractions within easy reach.

Bi-fold doors to both the living room and kitchen can be folded back to create a feeling of space and let the fresh, country air flow through. Exposed stone walls and timber beams feature throughout complemented by beautiful soft furnishings, vibrant pops of colour and a rustic, elegant design. There's a pretty bedroom with a king-size bed on the ground floor and a quirky and cute twin room, which is perfect for younger guests, on the first floor along with a very stylish bathroom. Underfloor heating keeps you warm and cosy during the winter months, during the warmer days throw open the doors and retreat to the patio, where you can relax under the shady pergola.

Little Coach House sits within the grounds of Rectory Farm House and guests have shared use of the lovely farmhouse gardens. Enjoy a few games of croquet or just sit amongst the flowers and soak in the peace and tranquillity. To one side of the coach house is a private patio and BBQ.

Ground Floor

Living Room:

Large bi-fold doors open to a cosy, stylish living room. The exposed stone walls, statement chandelier, colourful rugs and super-comfy velvet corner sofa create a welcoming place to relax after a day of exploring. Elegant lamps sit on small wooden side tables at either end of the sofa and cast a gentle glow over the room. The smart TV is wall-mounted to save on space. A beautifully crafted wooden staircase rises to the first floor, whilst on the left-hand side is a ground floor bedroom.


From the living room walk through to the modern kitchen, a clever layout designed to make maximum use of the space available. A stainless steel unit houses a two-ring electric hob and stove, along with the sink and under counter fridge. The glass splashback reveals the beautiful stone wall. A bistro-style table seats four comfortably on high stools creating the perfect spot for lazy breakfasts and evening meals. As with the living room, large bi-fold doors open to the courtyard creating a feeling of space and bringing the outside in.

There's also a handy W.C to the rear of the kitchen complete with bookshelves for some ‘me time' reading and a large mirror.

Bedroom One:

This pretty room is decorated with delicate pale-yellow wallpaper, a deep-set window to the front adds to the light, airy feel. There's an original brick fireplace (not in use) with a stunning feather wreath and an extremely comfortable iron-framed king-size bed. The size of the bed does mean it can really only be accessed from one side, however, the comfort of it more than makes up for any slight inconvenience with accessibility! Reading lights are attached to each side of the bed head, there's also an occasional chair and an antique chest of drawers with a large mirror over.

First Floor

A narrow, quite steep staircase leads to the first floor galleried landing. This spacious area has a wooden chest stacked with books, a fun faux zebra print rug and a velvet occasional chair.

Bedroom Two:

Cute, quirky, and colourful is the best way to describe this twin-bedded room, which is perfect for children or teenagers. A fabulous

vibrant printed wallpaper makes a real statement as do the ornate mirror and console table. The room is in the eaves and a Velux window (with a blind to avoid early morning sunrises) can be opened for fresh air. You'll find storage in the pull-out drawers under each bed, there are reading lights on either side of the beds and a colourful rug sits on the polished wooden floor

Bathroom / Shower Room:

This stunning bathroom features a wonderful standalone bathtub (large enough for 2), with a rainfall shower over, handbasin and WC as well as mood lighting. A vivid splash of colour comes from the unique wallpaper.


To the side of the property is a stone patio covered by a wooden pergola, which is swathed in summer jasmine. The wooden picnic bench is a peaceful spot for evening drinks or alfresco dining and there's a brick-built charcoal BBQ for use too. If the weather is being kind, you can relax and soak up the sunshine on one of the reclining sun loungers.

The owners allow guests to use the rest of the pretty, flower-filled gardens and there is plenty of space to relax, there's even a croquet set if you're in the mood for genteel afternoon games. The large field is perfect for impromptu cricket or football matches and there's a tree-filled orchard, with access to the countryside beyond. The village pub is a short walk away as is the farm shop and café, which are owned by your hosts at Little Coach House.
