About Melford Cottage

Exposed beams and oak features give the cottage a romantic, Tudor feel, the high ceilings keep the cottage bright and airy. Open plan sitting, kitchen, dining area with a patio door out to your private, west-facing terrace complete with BBQ, hot-tub (fluffy bath robes are included!) and bistro style seating.

The brand new contemporary bathroom suite with a rain shower over the bath is on the ground floor. The stairs lead to the galleried bedroom with king-sized four-poster bed.

Set on 22 acres the farm offers a range of activities to keep you busy. Take a wander along the woodland walk and meet furry or feathered friends along the way. Busy chickens are in the long grass, curious pygmy goats and pigs will guzzle any food offered whilst horses and sheep look to make friends.

Be as active as you like with a dip in the heated indoor pool or play a few sets on the all-weather tennis court. A cycle store for your bikes and plenty of paths to enjoy from the saddle or by foot. After all this effort you might like to unwind in the sauna, treat yourself to a massage, aromatherapy treatment or manicure at the on-site health and beauty salon or enjoy a soak in your own private hot-tub.

There is a small shop selling food essentials and a selection of home-made 'ready-meals'. You can pre-order a welcome breakfast or lunch hamper, packed with goodies such as Dorset Cereals, fresh bread, farm fresh eggs, local butcher's ham or bacon, Suffolk chutney and fresh local apple juice. You can sample locally sourced ice-creams.

For the younger ones there is a soft play area, table tennis, TV and Wii in the play barn. The outdoors play area comes complete with trampoline, climbing frames, football goal and more!

Ideal for larger groups, Melford Cottage can also be booked with The Wheat Sheaf (sleeps 4), The Straw Loft (sleeps 4), The Sheep Fold (sleeps 6) and The Goat Herd (sleeps 8).
