Hare is a very special cottage; from the moment you drive in to your enclosed parking area and shut the world behind you, you can relax. Fully wheelchair accessible with ramps, wide doorways, roll in shower, it’s also perfect for elderly dogs who can’t manage steps. It even has its own paddock at the bottom of the garden.
Inside, the cottage is fully equipped with everything you need including cutlery, crockery, glasses (and plastics for the hot tub), pots & pans, slow cooker, hand blender and whisk, serving / baking dishes, roasting tins, cake tins, digital scales, utensils, cafetiere, food storage boxes, tea towels, scourers, cloths, cleaning spray, hand soap, kitchen roll, bin bags, tea, ground and instant coffee, sugar, oil, vinegar, salt & pepper.
Kitchen is open plan to the seating area, with dining table and chairs, a bespoke double sofa-bed, wood-burning stove (with logs included), tv with freeview, dvd player, bluetooth soundbar, digital radio with Spotify.
Patio doors lead out, via a shallow ramp, to the secure garden with hot tub, table and chairs, and BBQ. The garden is laid to astroturf with gravel edging, solar lighting, and a variety of plants in large tubs. From the garden you can access your parking area and your paddock. And the paddock also leads to the secure fields via a double-gated area so no-one else’s dogs can see or bother yours (and vice versa) but you don’t need to use leads at all while you’re here.
Hare has one large bedroom, with a superking size bed (can be twin) and a double sofa bed for an extra guest if you need it. As always, there’s a choice of pillows, luxury duvets, cotton bedlinen, throws (for canine companions who sleep on beds), clothes hanging space. We also provide fluffy cotton robes, perfect for the trips to and from the hot tub, and slippers. There’s a hair dryer in one of the drawers too.
The large bathroom is an oasis of calming greens and greys, with a huge freestanding bath and walk (or roll) in shower with rainforest head and separate hand held spray, heated towel rail, towels, soap, shower & bath gel, moisturiser, loo roll, cleaning equipment (not that we expect you to clean!).
A storage cupboard by the front door is the perfect place to hang coats, leave wellies, or bags of dog food. It also contains an iron and ironing board for those of you who enjoy that kind of thing. The washing machine and tumble dryer are shared between the three cottages and are in the Laundry which opposite the cottages.
Our Dog Hamper contains dog towels, Fox Poo shampoo for any rolling incidents, dog tags with our address, water / food bowls, Pet Remedy spray, biodegradable poo bags, Simple Solution in case of any accidents, vet wrap and soft ban for emergency bandaging. And the number of the nearest vets is on the fridge.
The cottage has underfloor heating, via an air-source heat pump so we’re environmentally friendly too.
Also included are a selection of books, games, information about local shops, pubs and things to see & do.

The bathroom is to the right of the hall, and the bedroom is at the back of the cottage, overlooking the garden and fields behind.
Clad in the traditional barn black larch, the cottages are designed to reflect the local barns and stables.
