    This is a lovely little cottage. What makes it so special is: 1. The lovely private location near such a beautiful lake (I walked around it almost every morning which takes around 45 minutes. 2. The hot tub in the little forest glade near the house! We spent quite a bit of time there, there's nothing like being in your own private clearing in the forest and watching the stars from the hot tub. Wonderful :-) We even managed to see a few perseid meteors in the night sky while drinking champagne from plastic glasses. Very romantic :-) The cottage its self is very cosy, it's decorated olde-worlde style and isn't all singing/dancing modern. However, it's very charming and we found it a very pleasant place to spend a week.

With its beautiful setting, nestled in 12 acres of its own private woodland at the end of an unmade lane, this Bawsey cottage allows guests to simply sit back and unwind.

With all ground floor accommodation, this woodland cottage in Bawsey has been furnished throughout in a traditional, country style with the added benefit of an open fire which provides the perfect setting for cosying up on a cold winter's night.
