Come and stay at Mead Cottage
This cottage has four bedrooms, two en-suite double rooms with king sized beds and two twin rooms with a third bathroom. Leading from the hallway is the comfortable living room with its comfy sofas, an open fireplace with a wood burner, freeview flat screen television, DVD player and garden doors onto the patio decking area.
Each cottage has an electric double oven cooker, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, food processor. Although there is also an excellent range of cooking equipment, crockery and glassware in the kitchen we do try to make sure there are plenty of extra useful utensils you cannot think you will need until the moment you do. The kitchen also has a table and chairs as well as a larger table and chairs in the separate large dining room. In the utility room there is a washing machine, tumble drier and ironing facilities and a toilet cloakroom.
All the bedrooms are upstairs. There are two double bedrooms with en-suite shower and two twin bedrooms with a bathroom between them. Sheets, duvets with covers and pillows with cases are provided, as are extra duvets and pillows should you need them. We do provide an alarm clock in case you have to be up and about at a certain time. But for those of you who have time to enjoy the peace and quiet, it is very easy to oversleep here at Gorwell before you wake up to the beautiful countryside. Both the double rooms also have a flat screen tv for those who like to snuggle under the duvet to watch a good film.
A cot, highchair and a stair gate are also provided in the cottage but we do ask guests to provide their own cot bedding.
The cottage is centrally heated and has a log burner in the inglenook in the living room for cosy evenings or for after a long walk on an autumn or winter day. Wood is provided for this and along with the electricity and heating, this is included in the rental rate.
