A 17th century cottage of great charm, character and comfort. Standing just around the corner from the village green and, although relatively small in size, representing a very comfortable holiday home with modern facilities without compromising on its cottage atmosphere. Foolow is well known as being a small friendly village and guests at Fern Cottage certainly seem to enjoy being at “the hub” of village life.
The interior has a beamed ceiling to the ground floor accommodation (mind your head!) and a very old large stone fireplace which, whilst having been largely superseded by the modern central heating adds to the atmosphere. A Belfort range is in place for those preferring a “real log fire”. The cottage is carpeted throughout.
The LIVING AREA at Fern Cottage has a comfortable traditional suite and a HD flat screen television with freeview and DVD. The total effect is to create a room which, with its low beamed ceiling, is both cosy and full of old world charm and atmosphere.
The DINING KITCHEN AREA has been fitted out with limed oak units in keeping with a country cottage, with granite worktops. There is a microwave, a fitted cooking hob, a fitted electric convection oven with grill, electric toaster, electric kettle, refrigerator, plenty of crockery, cutlery, pans, towels, tea towels, iron, ironing board, drying rack, vacuum cleaner, dusters etc.
The BEDROOM has a high pitched beamed ceiling, fitted pine wardrobes, dressing table, bedside tables and period style double bed with pine headboard. Full duvet style bedding/sheets/pillows. The window in this area affords a pleasant view looking across the fields towards Eyam. The SHOWER ROOM is much admired by guests representing a compact but extremely stylish area with walk in shower and modern fitments. The walls and floor are finished in Silver Travertine marble mosaic tiling, the cisterns are concealed, there is modern spotlighting and a heated towel radiator.
Bottom row: paved area to cottage garden, village green
The COTTAGE GARDEN has a stone terrace affording access to the cottage and the garage from the front gate.
There is both a GARAGE and a car standing space just off the road. It is felt that, with its narrow staircase, Fern Cottage is not be ideally suited to visitors with impaired mobility. Central heating, electricity, towels and bedding are all free of charge. 24 hour return laundry service available on request.
A well behaved 100% housetrained dog may be accepted at Fern Cottage by arrangement although he/she must not at any time be left unattended or allowed at any time on the furniture. No smoking inside the cottage please.
