When you arrive:
When you arrive open the paddock gate to Poets Corner and park inside the enclosed garden where there there is plenty of parking on the drive in front of the garages to the left hand side of the cottage. (There is space for 3 – 4 cars.) The paddock gate, once closed, will keep bigger dogs secure in the spacious parking area. For smaller dogs, entry into the front garden via the gate adjacent to the paddock gate is very secure. All fences are 5-6 foot high. Follow the path around the shrubbery area to the front door.
On entry into the cottage, the spacious and impressive hallway runs almost the full length of the house.
Turn left to:
Entry to the bedroom is on your left hand side. It is spacious and airy with a beautiful superking bed. There is a beautiful feature wall and fireplace (the wall is that of the original cottage) and the bedroom has relaxing views over the large rear garden. There is a sideboard dresser, bedside cabinets and lovely bedside lamps.
Walk through the bedroom to an ample storage area and into the

There is a wonderful rustic dining table with seating for 8, (4 dining chairs and a dining bench), several large comfortable couches, with stunning views into the very large, well kept garden.
An imposing feature woodburner (run on mains gas) heats up this stunning room very quickly, you can imagine curling up with your dogs in front of this, watching a little television (wall mounted 40 inch) or reading a great novel with a nice glass of wine.
