This dog-friendly, child-friendly cottage has a range of interesting features, such as two log burning stoves, wood chip fired central heating and a large traditional farmhouse kitchen with open plan garden room.
Chelsworth is an accessible cottage (graded NAS Mobility Level 2), sleeping eight in total. The ground floor bedroom is designed to be accessible, with twin beds, a lowered bath with convenient seat and overhead shower.
Great for larger groups, this well equipped cottage has a hot tub within its very own fenced garden, a log burning stove and en-suite bathrooms. French doors open out onto the private fenced garden where you will find the hot tub as well as a barbecue and comfortable furniture.

With views across the Stour Valley, the garden is well equipped with a charcoal barbecue and private hot tub. Inside the cottage has wood chip fired central heating throughout, an open kitchen/dining/living area, log burning stove and private garden.
