Dragonfly Cottage


The shining jewel in our trio of cottages, Dragonfly, is a couple’s hideaway. Full of gorgeous velvets and copper accents, this is where Sian has indulged her love of colour and texture. Dragonfly Cottage is a special place to spend a holiday with your dogs (and the human you love if you must invite them too). Clad in the traditional barn black larch, all of the cottages are designed to reflect the local barns and stables…they really are beautiful. Dragonfly’s parking space is on the drive, opposite the front door, so the whole experience of staying here couldn’t be any more convenient. 

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

The kitchen is open plan to the seating area, with dining table and chairs, giant bespoke sofa with plenty of room for dogs and people, wood-burning stove (with logs included), tv with Freeview, DVD player, Bluetooth soundbar, and digital radio with Spotify. If it’s possible to be in love with a sink, then the one in this kitchen is a strong contender for a Valentine’s card…it is gorgeous! The washing machine and tumble dryer are shared between the three cottages in the laundry opposite. Dragonfly has underfloor heating via an air-source heat pump, so we are environmentally friendly in 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 edging and fairy lights, 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 garden also leads directly to the secure fields via a double-gated secure path. 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. 

Dragonfly Cottage has one large bedroom with a super king-size bed (or twin) and is plenty big enough for dog beds and dogs to join you…if you wish. This bedroom is a little extra special with a gorgeous velvet chair and headboard. A mirror, hairdryer, and a USB charging point are also included for your convenience. 

A large freestanding bath, and huge walk-in shower with a choice of shower heads, make the bathroom romantic for any couple. There is plenty of space to unpack your toiletries in the motion-sensitive lighted mirror cabinet, and don’t forget to try the range of bath/shower gel and moisturisers we supply. We have also included towels, loo roll, and cleaning equipment – not that we expect you to clean! Just look after our cottages with the love they deserve. This cottage is all about luxury and indulgence.
