Lakeside Cottage is a charming and traditional character cottage set on the grounds of Grade I listed Jacobean mansion which is the residence of the family that owns it. The cottage exudes period glamour through details including exposed wooden ceiling beams and a 400-year-old sandstone fireplace complete with wood burner, whilst luxuries include a sumptuous slipper bath. As the name suggests, there are views of the lake just outside, whilst the estate grounds offer nineteen acres of gorgeous gardens and parkland to explore, including a walking trail that leads to a 1,000-year-old chestnut tree.
Meanwhile, the well-appointed kitchen is equipped with everything you will need to self-cater including an oven, microwave and dishwasher while the washing machine and tumble dryer come in handy after muddy walks. The kitchen also boasts lovely views out across the lake.
Climb up the original spiral staircase and you’ll notice the exposed frame and a delightful feature window that add to the enchanting character of the cottage, as do the uneven floors of this historic building. The two bedrooms can be found up here and both feature a king-size bed, whilst the stylish, modern bathroom boasts a free-standing slipper bath and a large rainfall shower.
Outside of the cottage, there’s a patio area at the foot of the neighbouring clock tower where there’s a bistro set up for you to enjoy the sunshine and a bite to eat or relax with a glass of wine on a summer’s evening.
