Woodpecker Cottage : sleeps 15 in 7 bedrooms
This cottage was assessed as Accessible Accommodation NAS Mobility 2 and is our largest and most spacious cottage. It has seven bedrooms, six of which have their own ensuites, two of which are on the ground floor.
At the front of the property is a twin room on the ground floor this can also be made into a super king on request. The spacious bathroom (about 12ft by 5ft 6ins wide) has a large wet room type shower area, with separate bath, wide sink and toilet with douche spray.
At the rear of the cottage, looking out into the woods, is a bedroom which contains a double and a single bed. This room can either be used by a family, parents and a child, or two adults. The large (again 12ft by 5ft 6 ins wide) en-suite consists of a modern washbasin, standard height toilet and large open wet room type shower area with fold down seat. Both of these rooms have been used successfully by wheelchair users.
Also on the ground floor is a utility room with additional toilet and washbasin.
The cottage has a conservatory / sun lounge, which is accessed off the kitchen area down some steps with a handrail. Unfortunately, there was no way of avoiding having steps to this new room. However due to the open plan space and it not being a closed off room, guests have found that it still allows everybody to gather and still feel included and can be accessed from outside through the French doors.
This cottage has been great for large family groups, particularly with grandparents or relatives not good at walking or using wheelchairs.
During lockdown 2020, we we are able to add an outside kitchen with pizza oven, BBQ, bar area and fridge. This is in addition to the already popular firepit.
Parking is at the side of the property and there is ramp access to the front entrance. At the rear of the property is a raised decked area with tables and chairs in the warmer weather, this can be reached either by the French doors from the living area or by a permanent ramp from the garden path.
The property overlooks our 7 acre field which can be used as a communal area for gathering.
