Our Cottages

Our holiday cottages are the result of a long-term dream of ours to convert our disused and redundant agricultural barn into an architectural masterpiece. Named after our three children (Stable Cottage aside!), Rose Cottage, Stable Cottage, Edward’s Cottage and Louisa’s Cottage have been sympathetically designed to be in keeping with the surrounding countryside whilst still being able to offer guests a luxury home from home.

The three larger properties, Rose Cottage, Stable Cottage and Edward’s Cottage, are identical in size and layout and embrace open plan living. They are three bedroom properties sleeping 8 in total.

After stowing muddy wellies in the under-cover porch, you will walk into a bright, well equipped kitchen / dining / sitting room. Stretching the entire width of the barn, this large room opens out through French windows onto your own private terrace and garden complete with garden tables and chairs. A Smart TV allows guests to use their own Netflix log-in details to keep you entertained on those horrible rainy days. It goes without saying that guests have use of free Wifi.

A utility room with washing machine and tumble dryer leads off from the kitchen which in turn leads to a well ventilated shower room.

Two double bedrooms also lead off from the kitchen, the master bedroom having an ensuite bathroom with a large bathtub perfect for soaking after a long walk. Both bedrooms have televisions.

Children will absolutely love their ‘secret hideaway’ bedroom at the top of the property. Accessed by stairs from the sitting room, children will have their own space to create chaos and noise.

Louisa’s Cottage is our smaller property, sleeping 4/5 people. The property has a large double bedroom downstairs with super king bed and an upstairs bedroom with a small double bed and a single bed. The property has a wonderful open plan living/kitchen/dining area and private patio.

There is no extra charge for use of a travel cot, stair gate and high chair as required. Please contact us for information and to discuss your requirements.

The property particulars may change without prior notice and the owners are not liable for any inaccuracies in the property’s description on our website or through media/advertising sources. Any photographs are for illustrative purposes only.

Things to note:

The Cottages are set on a working small-holding therefore visitors can expect to see cows, dogs and horses during their stay with us. Please note that all four holiday properties are adjacent/joined to one-another. Each house has its own private patio and garden but the parking is shared. Due to the proximity to one-another and also to our farmhouse, you will be staying next door to children and animals (and sometimes noisy adults!). We are a laid-back farm which very much caters for families so if it is absolute peace and quiet you're after, you may want to look elsewhere!! Quiet hours at the farm are between 9pm and 9am and we ask that you keep noise to an absolute minimum during these times.

Edward's Cottage and Louisa’s Cottage are a the ‘ends’ and Rose Cottage and Stable Cottage are in the middle.

Due to our rural location, the wifi and mobile phone signal can sometimes be weak. Edward's Cottage in particular is affected when there is heavy rain/fog/mist.

A car is absolutely essential if you wish to stay at Downlands Farm.
