PLEASE NOTE THAT UNTIL JULY 2015 BUILDING WORK IS TAKING PLACE AT THE HOUSE IN WHOSE GROUNDS DOLLY'S COTTAGE IS LOCATED. DOLLY'S COTTAGE IS SHIELDED FROM THE HOUSE, HOWEVER GUESTS MAY BE AWARE OF THE BUILDING WORKS AS THEY ENTER AND EXIT THE PROPERTY.
Dolly's Cottage is a converted outbuilding, privately located in the large grounds of Nineveh Farm, on the outskirts of the picturesque Cotswolds village of Mickleton. The location is ideal for exploring some of England's finest countryside, towns and villages, being just three miles from Chipping Campden and eight miles from Shakespeare's Stratford-upon-Avon. Many beautiful walks can be taken directly from the doorstep of the cottage.
This former farm building has been lovingly and luxuriously renovated by its owner, to create a cosy and peaceful cottage, with glorious views over open fields. The peace and tranquility of the cottage are complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access (however the signal strength can be variable or weak), Freeview TV and a well equipped kitchen.
Dolly's Cottage sleeps a maximum of two people, in one bedroom, with one bathroom. Off street parking is available and there is a large private garden, with lovely views over fields. The cottage is an ideal retreat for a couple looking for a peaceful getaway.
The front door of Dolly's Cottage opens into the main living space of the cottage. The cottage contains two main rooms:
- Living/dining room/kitchen: A well designed and furnished room, which contains a large, comfy sofa, flat screen TV, fold away wooden dining table and two dining chairs. The well equipped, galley style kitchen contains an electric cooker and four ring induction hob, microwave, fridge with freezer compartment, toaster and kettle;
- Bedroom: Contains a king size bed, with memory foam mattress. Double doors provide access and views over the cottage's private gardens, to the fields beyond. The bedroom has a very stylish wet room adjoining it, which contains a rain shower, wash basin and toilet.
Outside the cottage is a large, private garden area, with lovely views out over fields. There is a garden table and two chairs, two sun loungers and a charcoal barbecue (from April to September).
