Holiday Rental House
Tucked away behind a quiet, tree-lined street, this one-time Quaker bakehouse is the perfect retreat for two. Underfloor heating adds to the warm and intimate atmosphere, with a seductively snug lounge and a cosy kitchen/breakfast room. The state-of-the-art Bang & Olufsen sound system gives concert-quality music all over the house while the outdoor courtyard – with its magical concealed lighting – is perfect for long, leisurely summer evenings. Upstairs, the Edwardian elegance of the bedroom (complete with finest English bedlinen) is complemented by an exquisite marble bath/ shower room with soft, fluffy towels. Downstairs, Hope Cottage has a washing machine, electric oven and gas hob, microwave, a fridge/freezer, dishwasher and a full set of crockery, cutlery and glasses.

The delightful Hope Cottage was my home for a week in October and I greatly enjoyed the entire experience. The location could not be better--very, very close to the castle and its surrounding lush and extensive grounds. No car is necessary, as one can see...More
