The Space

Living area
You’ll enter the cottage through a small porch and into our cosy living room equipped with a fully functioning log burner (don’t worry if you run out of logs, pop to The Greyhound and they will be happy to restock the log store) and a 42inch smart TV.

Continue through to the kitchen which features fridge, washing machine, coffee machine, kettle and toaster. Well also make sure you’ve got some basics for your stay (tea, coffee etc.).

At the back of the cottage you’ll find the family bathroom with both shower and bath available.

After a busy day enjoying Wivenhoe you’re sure to have a good nights rest. The master bedroom boasts a king sized bed with the second room offering a double bed, both with Egyptian cotton bedding and plenty of pillows. Both bedrooms are carpeted throughout, have exposed brickwork and storage for you to use during your stay. The master bedroom also has a new smart TV for those lazy mornings in bed.

If you need extra sleeping space then the mustard chair in the living room also folds out into a single bed.

Outside space
To the front of the cottage you’ll find a gated garden with a very small pond (look out for the frogs!) and a seating area with parasol ideal for dining al fresco or soaking up the sun late into the afternoon.

To the rear of the property a quaint south facing courtyard, perfect for enjoying a coffee or tea in the morning sun.
