Just across the lane from The Mews, Shepherd’s Cottage is a semi-detached cottage that was formerly a farm worker’s residence as its name suggests. It has been tastefully renovated and offers a lovely cottage with a comfortable, homely atmosphere and great character.

The Property:
Downstairs, the kitchen/living area is open plan with the lounge area at the front. The beautiful chestnut wood flooring originally came from trees on the farm and there is a gorgeous wood-burning stove – perfect for a relaxing winter’s night! The kitchen has a shaker style kitchen with stone worktops and the original slate floor gives a true farmhouse feel. There is also an extendable table that seats 6 in comfort. At the back of the cottage there is a large shower & utility room with a shower, toilet, sink and a washer/dryer.

Upstairs, all bedrooms newly refurbished, the king-sized bedroom has a large sash window with stunning views over the surrounding fields and woodland. There is also a cosy twin room and another slightly smaller room with full size bunk beds. The family bathroom on this floor has been totally renovated in 2019 and has a bath with rainfall shower over. Here you can soak away your cares, or just soak your tired and sandy children after a day spent rock pooling on the beach…

The back door leads out into a sunny, secure garden with a large patio and garden furniture. There is a also Weber charcoal barbecue for you to use on sunny summer evenings. There is a gate through to our lovely wildflower meadow and children’s play area – complete with tractor!

Doubles, singles or quadruples, no we’re not talking about drinks, we’re talking about tennis! This year we’re offering the opportunity to use Carswell Farm’s hardcore tennis court (pre-book) – for guests wanting to stay active this summer, why not get in touch and book!

*Please bring your own tennis rackets and balls, pre-bookable only for one hour at a time. The tennis courts are within the grounds of the owners house, therefore no dogs allowed.

As well as the woodburner, Shepherd’s Cottage is centrally heated and has all the standard facilities that we offer. Hotel quality white bed linen and big fluffy towels are all provided, as well as tea-towels, bath mats and environmentally friendly cleaning materials. We put delicious local organic milk in the fridge for your arrival with our compliments, along with enough recycled paper toilet rolls, Fair Trade tea, coffee, sugar to get you started!

Meal hampers: 
We offer a number of hampers which can be pre-ordered and placed in Shepherd’s Cottage ready for your arrival, so you don’t have to worry about cooking for the first 24 hours. Check out what food hampers are available.

Throughout the year we offer a unique collection of workshops such as foraging and safari tours, here at Carswell Farm. It’s a great way to experience something new, in the great outdoors.
