Whatley Cottage

A holiday home for the discerning …..

Recently subjected to a restoration program of excellence, this is a holiday home specifically for the connoisseur.

Once the home of the butler to the owner of this gentleman’s country residence, having been converted from a building that originally contributed to the machinations of the neighbouring watermill, it now rejoices in its current renaissance as a self-catering holiday home of charisma, being an amalgam of historic conservation and 21st century facilities.

Intended to accommodate only couples, every care has been taken to offer generous proportions in an environment that would invoke feelings of a link with history without compromising on those modern-day comforts.

Entering via the French doors, the traditional flagstone floor (which was manually dressed in a Gloucestershire quarry) leads through the hand-painted fitted kitchen to the cosy lounge with it’s saddle-leather sofas and log burning stove where the incongruity of the Smart- Television is surprisingly comfortable in the presence of an antique desk and furnishings.

Outside, the private garden and courtyard hold another treat – a unique garden room to enable you to enjoy the open-air whatever the weather where, under a natural slate roof with its Victorian ridge, tranquillity can be found at any time of day or night and under twinkling starlight, the perfect end to a perfect day, whilst perhaps dining ‘Al-fresco’ might create holiday memories to last a lifetime.

 

The most relaxing and luxurious week at Whatley Cottage! Amazing location for walking and scenery. Love the outdoor space. Such quality and comfort, Thank you so much, 5 stars!

ESCAPE TO THE COMFORT AND TRANQUILLITY OF whatley COTTAGE

An Axminster carpeted staircase delivers to the former tallet of this delightful property where the heritage style master bedroom boasts a beautifully presented historic wrought iron king size bed, complemented by heavy antique furnishings set on a genuine solid pine planked floor, rescued from a west country cricket pavilion, which was sadly being demolished after over 150 years of service,…….But…….. cross the landing with its leaded window and dormer viewpoint to the piece-de-resistance….. a bathroom where vintage fitments juxtapose with modern facilities, all standing on an incredible solid elm floor, reclaimed from the gatehouse of a 300-year-old country estate, now restored to museum quality. To grow to a size capable of yielding boards of this width, the tree from which they were taken may well have been planted during the reign of Elizabeth I.
