    “Great New Year!”

    We spent New Year 2017/18 here with family and friends, eight adults, two children and a well behaved dog. It’s a lovely cottage, loads of room, very clean and well equipped. The bedrooms were spacious with good quality bed linen and towels, comfy beds and plenty of storage. Upstairs has four double bedrooms, two with shower en suite and a single plus a large family bathroom with corner tub and separate shower.

    We spent New Year 2017/18 here with family and friends, eight adults, two children and a well behaved dog. It’s a lovely cottage, loads of room, very clean and well equipped. The bedrooms were spacious with good quality bed linen and towels, comfy beds and plenty of storage. Upstairs has four double bedrooms, two with shower en suite and a single plus a large family bathroom with corner tub and separate shower. Downstairs has a cosy den (or as we called it ‘the man cave’) with sofa, pouffe, log burner and TV, a large family lounge separated by an open (but not in use) fireplace, this has comfy seating, chairs and large beanbags, a third lounge can be used as a bedroom and has a comfy sofa bed and storage. The dining room easily seats 11+ and the kitchen is spacious and well equipped with range oven, two fridges, a freezer and dishwasher and plenty of pans, crockery, cutlery, glasses, utensils and even a slow cooker. The conservatory has cane furniture including a dinky child’s chair! A lovely touch at this time of year was a real Christmas tree and fairy lights. A well equipped utility and additional loo completed the downstairs. Outside is a large hot tub, this is suitable in all weathers because it is covered with a timber framed shed with decking, there’s plenty of garden furniture for those who don’t want to go in but still want to be part of the hot tub fun. The garden is a good size with nice landscaping including a small area ideal for bear and gruffalo hunts! There’s a nice pub about 20/30 mins walk away, The Wellington offers good beer, wine and food (try the fish and chips, game stew and belly pork). The owner lives next door and was extremely helpful and friendly, he services the hot tub daily but other than that leaves you to enjoy the cottage. I would highly recommend Hookstone House! Thanks Eigle, we had a great time!
