A quintessential chocolate box cottage
Four bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. On-site parking. Large sitting room with wood burner. Feature kitchen/diner.
Located in the quietest and prettiest part of town, The Old Sweet Shop has undergone an extensive and sympathetic restoration to highlight its beautiful sweeping staircase, beams and large fireplace. Sleeping eight in four tastefully decorated rooms, each with its own bathroom, it has a comfortable sitting room, a large kitchen/diner with range cooker, a pretty garden and on-site parking for two cars. It’s Five Star rated by VisitEngland.
The Old Sweet Shop is a 17th-century thatched cottage, and our third luxury holiday home. Some of our neighbours remember buying strawberry sherbets, gobstoppers and ice creams here on the way to and from school. As with all our character properties, you’ll be staying in a truly historical cottage if you choose to holiday here.
We have now completed an extensive and sympathetic restoration, which maximises the cottage’s space and light, and historical features including thick stone walls. A large fireplace with over mantle, exposed beams, semi-circular staircase and leaded light windows all sit perfectly alongside the new furnishings and modern appliances.
The sitting room has charming mullion windows with pretty seats as well as comfortable sofas and armchairs. There’s a large HD TV with Sky, Netflix and a Blu-ray player to keep you entertained.
The spacious kitchen/diner has a range cooker, high-spec appliances and plenty of work and storage space.
Perfect for family gatherings, the dining area has a large oak table that seats eight comfortably.
Antique furniture, high-quality mattresses and furnishings, and crisp bedding and soft towels complement the décor of four comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms (three en-suite).
They are named after favourite sweets – Marshmallow (king), Lemon Drop (twin), Strawberry Sherbet (double) and Refresher (four poster king). In the sunny garden, you’ll find a summer house, two terraces and a large hot tub.
As with all our cottages, The Old Sweet Shop is suitable for families with children, couples and larger adult-only groups. Dogs are welcome on request. Linen and central heating are included in the rental (please bring your own beach towels for use in the hot tub). There is on-site parking for two cars.
As it is located next door to Pilgrim Corner, which sleeps eight, we can now accommodate larger parties, depending on availability. Please contact us for more details.
