The gated garden with sun-trap terrace and lavender hedge has been planted with hundreds of spring bulbs, many more fragrant and traditional plants and two dozen unusual old style roses.

Our views are to our own pretty garden and to the grasslands of the former golf course. We are above the river on the high bank but due to trees can only glimpse the water- however riverbank walks are right there! The cottage is one of a pair of cottages ( we are semi detached ), the other is lived in by a quiet family with  a cat- who are friendly if you want them to be but will not intrude unless asked. Next nearest buildings are the pub approx  1000 yards and a farm approx 600 yards

  • Assistance dogs and other well behaved dogs (maximum 2) are welcomed.

Please contact us for advice on the suitability of the cottage for your holiday if you have problems with negotiating steep stairs inside and steps outside, or have limited mobility. Click here for Vanilla Cottage 's  access statement


Sorry, but due to the stairs, we do not accept children under age 4, except non crawling babes in arms.We are not child unfriendly- this rule is in fact because we want to keep little people safe. Toddlers will be better off at our Tintern Abbey Cottage.

Anyone tall please note that although we have no low beams  or ceilings but our old cottage doorways are lower than in newer houses. Our  ceilings are not low but some of our doorways are. The doorway from the hall to the sitting rom is 5ft 9" or 173 cms high. Door to Kitchen is 5ft 11" or 180.5cms, the three upstairs doors ( bedrooms, bathroom ) and the door on the staircase are all 5ft 11.5 " or 181.5cms.   As our sign says, Duck or Grouse!
