About this listing

Perfect for lovers of the quintessentially English cottage. Carefully renovated to allow traditional features to blend with modern, comfortable, stylish living. A 10% discount is offered for 1 couple staying in 1 room.

The space

Rural chic at its best! A thatched 18th century cottage bursting with character and clutter-free style. In the dining hall you can read and dream on the window seats, relax in front of the inglenook fireplace, enjoy oak floorboards and latch doors, exposed beams, cob walls and dinner at rustic antique dining table. An additional wood-burning stove in the living room allows you to warm through and relax in the vintage leather armchair surrounded by fresh flowers, scented candles and beautiful contemporary artwork. The kitchen is a victorian addition to the cottage boasting stone flooring, settle and all the mod cons needed to knock up a feast. Up the cottagey stairs to the pretty bedrooms; large, light and luxuriously carpeted with views of the the church and water meadows. Both bedrooms have king-size, french style, cream iron beds, crisp white cotton bed linen with sumptuous duck down pillows and duvets. Both bedrooms have a chest of drawers, the larger has a button back chair, the smaller has a decorative cast iron fireplace and the spacious bathroom in-between boasts white fluffy towels, dressing gowns and toiletries.

Guest access

You have plenty of space to enjoy a peaceful lunch at the large garden table with benches in the enclosed cottage garden.

Interaction with guests

53 Durweston is ideal for 2 couples to socialise, a family to enjoy or a romantic couple looking for a private getaway. I am very happy to make recommendations of local places to visit, pubs and restaurants or you can snuggle down and enjoy everything the cottage has to offer.

Other things to note

The 2nd bathroom with shower and loo is in the annexe.

The cottage was lovely and we really enjoyed our stay. The place was lovely and quiet but close enough to things when you needed or wanted something more. We also appreciated all the attention to the details, art work, towels, soap, kitchen equipment etc etc and the welcome treats. Overall a very homely feel. Emma was also a great host. Always quick to respond and happy to deal with our requests.

Absolutely charming and incredibly comfortable cottage. Everything was set up to make us feel really welcome - even our doggy was given some lovely treats! Gorgeous fluffy towels and cosy duvets, pretty fresh flowers and a bottle of wine. What more could we ask for. Thank you for such a lovely stay.
