The Cottage is a beautifully renovated 18th century dairy, now redesigned for easy living and relaxing holidays.
Ideal for up to 4 people, the accommodation comprises a spacious living, dining, & kitchen area, a shower room on the ground floor, together with a double bedroom (with kingsize bed) and twin bedroom on the first floor.
The living area is furnished with contemporary sofas, rugs and tables, with TV, DVD player, CD player, and ipod dock. The whole ground floor is heated by a wood-chip burner if required, fuel included. There’s a side door to the screened terrace adjoining the cottage which is perfect for alfresco dining (or breakfasting!) There’s plenty of outdoor furniture (upgraded in 2016), including recliners, outdoor lounge furniture, and table and chairs. There’s a BBQ too, with charcoal supplied.
With ample cupboards and work space, the kitchen is fully equipped with gas cooker, extractor, fridge freezer, dishwasher, toaster, coffee maker, kettle & microwave, together with a wide range of cooking equipment, crockery & cutlery. We’ve tried to include everything we can think of, but please don’t hesitate to ask if there is something else you need! The table & chairs seat 4 people, and high chairs are available at no extra charge.
Shower enclosure, WC and hand-wash basin with cupboards, extractor, & heated towel rail. Towels and toiletries are all provided, even loo roll!
Master bedroom – a spacious room with original oak beams, & fully carpeted. This room is furnished with a king-size four poster bed,(not the one shown – awaiting new photos!) oak bedside drawers, oak tallboy & wardrobe, and a dressing table. There is a Velux window facing west, and a large double glazed window with glazed safety screen. We provide hairdryers and dressing gowns in all bedrooms. If it turns cool there are electric heaters in both bedrooms, and fans in all rooms if the temperature rises. All linen and towels are provided, including pool towels.
Twin Bedroom – also carpeted, with two 3’0” oak framed beds, bedside cabinets, a double pedestal dressing table with triple mirror & stool. There is a large oak wardrobe on the adjoining landing providing additional storage space for this bedroom. Travel cots can be provided free of charge.
All beds are made up for you before you arrive – and we always provide mattress and pillow protectors.
The Cottage has a lovely spacious terraced area adjoining the house. Garden furniture and outdoor lamps are provided. There is a BBQ for the sole use of the Cottage guests.
The majority of the gardens are shared space, but with over 3 acres to play in, you are bound to find a spot all of your own! The heated swimming pool faces south and is great for cooling off when the summer temperatures rise. Pool towels, loungers and parasols are provided.
Dressing gowns, hairdryers, towels, flannels, soap and shower gel are provided. We try to always use eco friendly products and we would really appreciate it if you can too!
All bed linen is provided and is either Egyptian cotton or poly-cotton mix. Your beds will be made up for you on your arrival. We have a selection of pillows and duvets available, including hypo-allergenic or natural fills. Please state your preference (if any) at the time of booking. We will do our best to accommodate your needs.
A separate laundry room is available for the use of guests, with washing machines and tumble dryers. We supply clothes washing liquids and softeners. If the weather is good enough please do dry your washing outside!
Domaine du Clezio is a rural property and whilst we have mains water supply we do not have mains drainage. We provide guests with suitable cleaning products, free of charge, which will not harm the environment.
Mobile phone reception is generally good around the property. WiFi is now available in both properties but signal strength isn’t guaranteed! This is because most of the walls are around a meter thick. We will do our very best to ensure you have internet access when you need it.
Please note that smoking is not allowed inside any of our properties. You are welcome to smoke outside in the gardens but please ensure that you do not smoke near other non-smoking guests. Please ensure that you dispose of your cigarettes safely.
Pets are permitted in the downstairs living areas in the properties, but not on the sofas. Please ensure that you do not allow any pets in any of the bedrooms or bathrooms. Please make sure that you clean up after your pets – bags are available if you forget yours!
