The Keeper's Cottage is an enchanting holiday cottage tucked away in the south facing corner of Soulton Wood and enjoys an open country aspect. Accessed off half a mile of private lane, which passes Soulton Brook and winds through Soulton Wood.
The stone core of the cottage dates from the 1500s, but benefits from brick and timber extensions. From the sitting/dining room - which opens onto the private garden - with its open fire, guests can observe the plentiful wildlife and the total quiet of this secluded location.
While the cottage is big enough to accommodate six (two double rooms and a twin room), it is equally perfect for a couple seeking total escape in a romantically secluded location.
This self catering cottage is particularly magical during bluebell time (April and May) and the Autumn (September to November) when the woodland leaves are golden and scarlet. During heavy snow a guest described the setting as ''Narnian''.
The Keeper's Cottage is in the middle of the location described above. It is yours to explore.
