Candlemas Cottage is one of a small group of houses dating from at least the early 1800s, which appear on old Ordnance Survey maps as 'Halfway Houses', simply because they are midway between Hanslope village and the neighbouring hamlet of Long Street. It is tucked away in a quiet location behind the other cottages, and has open fields at the rear, beyond the parking area. There is a small patio garden to the front of the cottage, which guests are welcome to relax in.
The entire property is available for guests to use.
Interaction with guests
We live right next door, so we're always on hand if guests have any questions. We're happy to advise on places of interest and nearby restaurants.
Other things to note
For the convenience of guests, we have provided a selection of books and board games. In the kitchen there are plenty of recipe books, and fresh herbs in planters on the windowsill (currently filled with marjoram, coriander, curry plant, sage and oregano). In addition to these, guests are welcome to use the rosemary, lemon balm and thyme plants in the courtyard garden to the front of the cottage.
We like to welcome guests with a breakfast basket including bread, butter, milk, preserves and fruit juice; do let us know if there are any special dietary requirements (e.g. gluten-free, lactose-free, vegetarian) and we will do our best to meet your needs. Of course, standard items like tea, coffee and sugar are also provided.
- There are other properties nearby, so we would ask guests to respect our neighbours and be considerate.
