The Managers Cottage

This cottage was once the home of the Gasworks Manager and his family. He is wife and children were responsible, not only for burning the coal, to produce the gas, filtering it, to remove the unwanted gas, lighting the towns gas street lights, as well as all the billing and money collection. This 18th century bluestone cottage, now has all the amenities ideal for either a romantic couples stay or a group enjoying a get together with private walled garden and inviting sunroom.
The wall of the kitchen, behind the cooktop has been recently restored. Previous fixes over the years had involved adding concrete, and plaster. In May 2019, we stripped all that back to stone and re-mortared with the correct lime mortar and we think it looks great. The kitchen has a large table, new gas cooktop, Microwave, Coffee pod machine, fridge etc and it’s own back door onto a private walled garden. The bathroom has a walk in show as well as a 2 person corner spa. One bedroom has a queen size 4 poster bed, the other bed is off the lounge area. There is also a separate sun room, ideal for reading with a glass of wine, or for our wedding groups, getting ready and having the makeup done.
