2 Bedrooms - Sleeps 4
Burgess is named after the old smuggler that once lived at Trengove. This single storey cottage overlooks the central lawn and flower bed in the courtyard. It is a particularly bright and sunny property, receiving sun for most of the day... The cottage can also be entered through a back door which is only a few yards from the car park. This leads into a carpeted passageway which takes you into the rest of the property.
The living area has attractive wood flooring with two comfortable settees. The well-appointed kitchen has grey shaker style cupboards and a splendid granite worktop. An attractive arched doorway, clothed in wisteria in spring, leads out of the living area on to the open, predominantly south facing patio courtyard, with wooden table and chairs, ideal for al fresco dining.
The compact bathroom has a wet room style shower, toilet, washbasin and heated towel rail. On either side of this are the two bedrooms, carpeted throughout, one with twin beds and the other with a king size bed. An interesting feature of this cottage is the two tiny apertures with hand painted stained glass windows, most likely used for ventilation when the cottage used to be a cow’s house.
There is a separate laundry room a few yards away with washing machine and tumble dryer.
I enjoyed a week in Burgess Cottage in May. The cottage was beautifully maintained with absolutely everything necessary for a comfortable stay. The whole complex of cottages is extremely well planned with a playing field for children running alongside.
