Barn Owl Cottage

BARN OWL COTTAGE

Barn Owl was our first cottage and the start of our business in 2017. The front door opens into a hallway with a coat, shoe, and lead storage area, perfect for dropping everything and relaxing after a long day out in the fields. Secure parking alongside the cottage, with access to the fields via a double-gated pathway, means that you can relax from the moment you drive into your own enclosed parking area and shut the world behind you. Clad in the traditional barn black larch, all of the cottages are designed to reflect the local barns and stables…they really are beautiful. 

Let’s talk about some of the facilities that Barn Owl Cottage has to offer…

The kitchen is open plan to the seating area, with dining table and chairs, bespoke sofa, wood-burning stove (with logs included), tv with Freeview, DVD player, Bluetooth soundbar, and digital radio with Spotify. The washing machine and tumble dryer are shared between the three cottages and can be found in the laundry opposite. Each cottage also has underfloor heating via an air-source heat pump, so we are environmentally friendly too. It is a little haven of luxury and has everything you need to shut the doors and hide away from the world. Our aim here at Developing Dogs Holidays is to make your stay as close to home-from-home as possible, and we like to think we have achieved that. If there is anything missing that would make your stay a little bit more special, please let us know. 

Outside the beautiful floor-to-ceiling window is the garden with hot tub, table and chairs, and BBQ. The garden is artificial grass, with slate and fairy lighting, all surrounded by 6ft fences for your privacy and security. If you are looking for escapism, this is where you will find it! There are at least 6m between the cottages and gardens at their narrowest point. The cottage has fully secure parking and direct field access via a double-gated pathway. No one else’s dogs can see or bother yours (and vice versa); therefore, you don’t need to use leads while you’re here. This is what we mean when we say it is a holiday for everyone.

Barn Owl Cottage has two gorgeous bedrooms which sleep up to four people, both with super king-size beds (one can be a twin). There is also a choice of pillows, luxury duvets, cotton bed linen, throws (for canine companions who sleep on beds), and plenty of hanging space for clothes.  

The bathroom includes a full-size bath with a powerful shower over. We have also included towels, shower and bath gel, moisturiser, loo roll, and cleaning equipment – not that we expect you to clean! Just look after our cottages with the love they deserve.
