Wagtail Corner was once the old shippen at Stonehayes Farm. In country dialect, a shippen is a cowshed, so this was where the cows came in from the fields to spend the winter. Now there’s not a whiff of that though, no trace of its former life other than the very fabric of the building – the thick stone walls and some of the big old timbers supporting the roof, but that’s nice, it all adds character. Wagtail Corner is ideal for family holidays, for two couples, or for part of a bigger group renting a few of the cottages at Stonehayes Farm.

Once you step inside a good feeling comes over you, like you know straightaway that you’re going to have a wonderful holiday. You see, it’s all so light and airy, so bright and fresh; a nice big open plan living space with a modern kitchen at one end and a comfy living area to the other. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need for your holiday; there’s a sturdy dining table, an electric oven and hob, fridge with ice box, wine cooler, dishwasher, microwave, and washer/dryer.

Put your feet up on the leather sofas of an evening, get the popcorn out and watch a movie; there’s a Freeview TV and a DVD player, and if you’re here in the autumn or winter and you fancy it’s a bit chilly you can light the wood-burner and savour that lovely warm glow. There’s a quirky feature, ‘the door to nowhere’; it did go somewhere once upon a time but it doesn’t now and is just there for the charm. A more useful door takes you to the downstairs loo!

Upstairs to the right you step up to Bedroom 1; have the sweetest dreams in the kingsize bed, fill the cupboards with your clothes, sing your heart out in the en suite shower room in the morning. Bedroom 2 sleeps 3 people in a superking and a single bed or in three singles, plus there’s room for a cot. Between the two bedrooms there’s a contemporary bathroom with a P bath and overhead shower.

What often happens is that bigger groups, or two or three families book two or three of our cottages together, and that’s where Wagtail Corner is really handy as it has the room for you to opt for a bigger dining table that seats 14 – that way you can all dine together! Especially good if you’re all here celebrating a big birthday or something equally worth raising a glass to...

"“What a fantastic place! Easily the best self catering cottage we have stayed in – a real home from home. Words upon arrival “Can we stay here forever”- a sentiment that has certainly not wavered through the week. We will definitely be back when the warmer weather arrives.""
