Property Details

The open plan kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher, gas cooker  and traditional country style Rayburn range cooker, fridge freezer, microwave and a dining table seating up to 10 (when the cottage is combined with Woodpecker). The seating has 2 large sofas and a comfortable chair, is equipped with a widescreen TV, DVD player and iPod dock and for those cosy winter evenings, a woodburning stove (logs and firelighters supplied).

There is a Master Bedroom with king zip and link beds which leads to a Jack and Jill style family bathroom with an over bath shower, WC and hand basin.  There is a single bedroom which has a 3ft single bed.  Then we have a 3rd bedroom which is a double bedroom with king zip and link beds which leads into a en-suite bathroom with a shower, WC and hand basin.  Travel cot, changing mat and high chair and other baby friendly extras can be booked in advance.

Swallow communicates with Woodpecker (sleeps 5) between the hallways for extended family get-togethers or friends’ reunions. Together the two cottages can sleep 10 including children plus two travel cots.

Swallow is particularly popular at Christmas time – guests love to cook their Christmas dinner in the Rayburn and the woodburner gives a cosy atmosphere for the perfect country Christmas.

VisitEngland has inspected Swallow and awarded it a 4 star Gold.

Things you should know

Read more here on what to expect from a stay with us at Cranmer Country Cottages…

We try to engender a friendly laid- back feel to our place, where guests can come and go freely in the knowledge that if something goes wrong there is usually someone around to help.  We do have a few rules in place as this makes for a better and safer experience for everyone.  As a green business we believe that “less is more” however this should not mean fewer home comforts for our guests.  We have done a lot of the heavy lifting in terms of energy & water management, however there is always more we can do, as there really is no plan B.

Please observe the following Property Rules before you book and during your stay:

  •   Check-in: After 16:00
  •   Check out: 10:00
  • Self-check-in with lockbox
  • No smoking in the cottages or on site.
  • No parties or events
  • Pets are not allowed on the main site. Up to 2 medium sized dogs are welcome to stay in End Cottage
  • Pool rules must be observed. See our pool rules here
  • Children must be supervised at all times
  • No extra guests without permission.
  • No noise outdoors or in the cottages or games room after 10.00pm
  • No Fireworks Chinese lanterns or drones.
  • No EV charging with a cable directly from the cottages
  • Do not plug in heavy use external electrical items ie: air conditioning units or catering equipment. We have a 2-phase supply and this will overload our electrical supply!
  • Please sort waste into household waste & recyclables before you throw.
  • CCTV is in use in the car parking areas and pool Hall.
