Boxtree Cottage is the third of four cottages in a row. A path leads from the lane past the first two cottages to the front door (the path terminates at the fourth cottage). The door opens into: Living room: A cosy, beautifully furnished room, with a flag stone floor, wooden beams, large stone fireplace with wood burning stove, and a flat-panel satellite TV with DVD player. The living room is also used for dining and it contains an extendable dining table, with seating for up to four people.The living room then leads into: Kitchen: For a small cottage, the stylish kitchen is well equipped, including a cooker with hob, microwave, dishwasher and fridge.A narrow, steep staircase leads up from the kitchen to a small first floor hallway, off which is: Bedroom 1: A cosy bedroom, with a wooden floor and a ledge and brace door, containing a king size bed and a flat panel TV with DVD player; Family bathroom: Contains a bath with shower attachment, basin and toilet, as well as a flat screen TV built into the wall.The staircase continues up into the gable of the house, opening out to: Bedroom 2: Another cosy bedroom, with exposed beams, containing a single bed and a flat screen TV.Heading back downstairs and out of the front door, across the path is a private enclosed garden, which is mostly paved and gravelled. There is an outdoor table and four chairs.
At the end of the garden is an outbuilding, which contains a freezer, a washing machine and a tumble dryer.
We booked this property late on the Friday evening and were delighted with the service we received from the manager and owner, enabling us to take the cottage from the Monday. The information we received was accurate and we were able to find the cottage easily.
The cottage was charming and spotlessly clean on our arrival, and the tea, coffeee, milk biscuits etc were very welcome. The bed was King size and very comfortable.
We loved the cottage, particularly in the evenings when we lit the wood burner. It took us a while one evening to get the oven working and the user guide didn't seem to be there but we got it working eventually so there was no problem.
Personally we had no mobile signal, I'm sure other providers would have been okay and there was excellent wi-fi so again not an issue..
We only ate out one night at the King's Arms in Mickleton. Highly recommended, good food and friendly service.
We would definitely recommend the cottage and in all probability will use it againn ourselves.
