Wisteria Cottage - Our Cosy and Romantic Hideaway.
Description from the owner
Looking for that perfect hideaway? Then look no further.
Wisteria Cottage is our cosy, romantic and discreet hideaway for two. The cottage stands in the award winning park like gardens of le Manoir du Neveit and enjoys panoramic views of the Forest of Duault. Guests are not restricted to the cottage garden and are encouraged to search out the secluded hot spots in our award winning gardens as the sun moves round. For the more adventurous, you can amble 200m down the rarely used farm track to the little trout stream which ripples through the hay meadow, find a shady spot under a tree and watch the numerous butterflies as they bask in the sun. If you are lucky, you might also see the herons searching for fish and the deer coming out to feed in the evenings.
Wisteria Cottage as it is now known, was originally built as accommodation for the families that worked the land of the Manoir. The Manoir was built in 1647 but although very old, Wisteria does not date back that far. When we bought the property in 2002 Wisteria was derelict, just four walls, it was one of two properties left standing in the grounds. Originally there were several other cottages nestling around the Manoir but these have long since disappeared.
A total ground up restoration of Wisteria has recently been completed with the needs of our guests in mind. It has been extensively insulated, double glazed and had a wood burner installed, so is completely suitable for all year living.
The open plan ground floor has a feature stone wall and a Breton fireplace, it comprises of a fully fitted kitchen area, a dining area, and lounge area with a comfortable settee where you can curl up in front of the woodburner and watch TV or a DVD.
The fitted kitchen equipment includes:- gas hob, oven (with grill and rotisserie), fridge (with small freezer), washing machine, microwave, toaster, kettle, coffee maker etc. Also a full complement of tableware, cutlery, glassware, utensils, pots & pans.
The fully tiled bathroom has a matching low level toilet and wash basin, the basin has a large illuminated mirror mounted above. There is a heated towel rail and a large thermostatically controlled shower with humidity controlled extractor.
The carpeted first floor bedroom has a timbered ceiling and a south facing window which looks out over the gardens with panoramic views of the forest. The comfortable double divan bed has individual wall lights matching bedside tables and a dressing table.
The following are also provided - vacuum cleaner, ironing board, iron, brushes, dustpans, mop, bucket etc. There is clothes line with pegs provided, and use of owners tumble drier on request.
All towels and linen are included in the price, and for those staying longer than one week these would be changed weekly.
The large full width terrace at the rear of the property increases the living area significantly in the summer and is equipped with a barbecue, table/chairs and sun loungers, hammocks etc. The large south facing window from the dining area opens out to the patio and doubles as a very convenient serving hatch.
