Information about St Nectan Cottage
The cottage is quite stunning, what started life as part of a medieval courtyard house has been tweaked, caressed and lovingly restored and now stands proud as an incredibly stylish and comfortable cottage in a wonderful setting.
Loaf sofas and armchairs grace the lovely sitting room. Netflix is provided on the TV and there is a great selection of DVDs and books so snuggle up on those sofas and unwind.
The kitchen is a joy for the cooks amongst you. All mod cons are provided including a dishwasher, along with all the equipment you could wish for. The slate floors have underfloor heating so are toasty on the toes. No doubt you will want to try all the wonderful local eateries nearby but for that night in, you have all you need.
There are three stunning bedrooms with great use of wallpapers, some from Neisha Crossland and others from Cole and Son. A fabulous kingsize bed in the master bedroom, stylish twins in another and quality bunk beds for the kids. There are deep soft mattresses, high thread count linens and clever use of throws and cushions plus bright designer fabrics at the windows. The beds are made up with duck down bedding however hypoallergenic can be provided if you prefer.
A gorgeous claw foot bath in the en suite for the master bedroom and stunning family shower room with a large walk-in shower. Soak in a bubbly bath or refresh under a powerful drench shower and then wrap up in large soft towels.
Parking for one car is available outside the cottage, more can be parked a few steps away in the courtyard.
St Nectan is fully WiFi ready, so if you need to keep in touch with the outside world you can.
One adult dog is very welcome.
St Nectan is set in 120 acres of stunning grounds with woodlands and rivers to explore; this is a perfect rural escape for friends or family. Figgy Cottage sleeps 4 and is in the same grounds so both could be booked togther for a larger party.
