Cosy Corner is a delightful mix of period and modern; a peaceful retreat to unwind in a typical cotswold stone cottage with contemporary home comforts. The cottage has been evaluated under the Visit England national accreditation scheme and awarded 4 stars.
The accommodation comprises a ground floor lounge, with dining table, which has a large and characterful inglenook fireplace, and well equipped kitchen with induction hob, twin oven, fridge with freezer compartment (a full size freezer is in the washroom - see below), dishwasher and microwave as well as all the usual small appliances which will make this home from home. On the first floor is the bathroom which has a bath (with shower attachment), separate shower (newly installed in 2017), wash basin, toilet, shaver point, and heated towel rail. There is also a twin bedroom on this floor ( 2 x 3ft single beds). On the second floor is the double bedroom (1 x 4ft6in double bed).
The inglenook fireplace is home to a very efficient wood burning stove which will warm any chill evening; logs, kindling, and fire lighters are supplied for your convenience and are inclusive of your stay..
You are welcome to enjoy the cottage garden, which extends across the access pathway through a gate, and to enjoy the garden games which can be found in the small shed, or a BBQ on the patio area (Weber BBQ and tools supplied - you will need to provide BBQ fuel).
Also inclusive of your stay, three adult size bicycles can be found, two in the bike shed and one under a cover. These are available for your use, but of course at your own risk.
A high chair and travel are available. Please email or telephone after booking if you need one or more. Stair Gates have been fitted just inside the bedroom doors. They are retractable and can be used if required.
In the garden you will find "the washroom". This has been equipped with a washing machine, 2 tumble dryers, and a freezer. There is also a toilet, washbasin and full size walk in shower. The washroom is ideal for walkers or cyclists returning after a day trek, but of course can be equally useful for all guests.
The cottage and washroom benefit from an Air Source Heat Pump, providing efficient heating and, during hot weather, air cooling; making you stay during a hot spell much more comfortable.
Accessibility, health and safety
This is an old property and has typical character features, including relatively narrow and steep stairs, low beams in one room and doors of lower height than modern doors. On the stairways, appropriately placed handrails are in situ. However, guests with impaired mobility may encounter some difficulty with access, including their ability to quickly exit the cottage in the event of an emergency. Given the age and character of the cottage, regrettably, wheelchair access to other than the ground floor is not possible and some of the approach surfaces to the cottage may be challenging.
An Accessibility Guide is available on request, or can be viewed and downloaded from the link below. This describes the surfaces and identifies the beam, stair, and other heights in the cottage and includes photographs.
The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.
