Gardener's Cottage

Ideal for those wanting to find a private countryside escape away from modern technology, Gardener's Cottage is set in the quiet rural hamlet of Bocombe nearby to the rural village of Parkham. The cottage is all ground-floor with beautiful rustic charm, hosting cosy spaces that you and your loved ones will be delighted to unwind in after busy days. Step into the cottage and you'll find an entrance hall, an ideal space for all your storage needs during your stay.

Beyond this is a splendid sitting area with delightful framed wall art, where you can snuggle up with your favourite book or settle down for a family evening film with the large selection of DVDs provided by the owner. Into the hallway, you'll be able to find a pleasant family bathroom with a shower over bath, WC, hand basin and towel rail, a charming twin bedroom with a wooden desk and wardrobe space, and a master bedroom with a grand four-poster king-size bed, elegantly decorated with a dressing table, ample storage space, and a contemporary en-suite shower with a shower cubicle, WC, hand basin and a towel rail. Throw open the patio doors either from the master bedroom or sitting area and you will find a lovely decking area with outdoor seating and a swing chair that overlooks the fabulous private one acre of garden that the cottage benefits greatly from.
