Braunston Manor Cottage is a modernised 17th century cottage that is situated next to Braunston Manor in the historic village of Braunston which is famous for being at the heart of the UK canal network. The village has a marina, canal pubs, local convenience store, chip shop, cafe, breakfast canal boat and a superb butchers along with many picturesque local walks. It provides a convenient base for visiting Stratford, Warwick, Silverstone and the English Midlands in general.
The property is a detached two storey cottage, with a kitchen and sitting room on the ground floor and two double bedrooms on the first floor. In detail :
Kitchen – Fully fitted modern kitchen with dishwasher, electric cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine/tumble dryer, as well as a large range of cooking utensils. The kitchen table provides comfortable dining for four.
Sitting room – Two large sofas, together with a modern electric fire-effect stove and subtle side lighting gives an instant feeling of cosiness on a cold winter’s night. The 50" smart TV supports internet streaming of terrestrial channels, together with Netflix and Amazon Prime movie subscriptions and Chromecast
Bedroom 1 – king-size four poster bed, a chest of drawers, a wardrobe and an ensuite bathroom. The bathroom has a toilet, washbasin and bath with over-bath shower attachment. At the end of this bedroom, there is an amazing ancient large chimney stack that implies that maybe the Cottage was once upon a time utilised as a forge, or as the main kitchen for the Manor house.
Bedroom 2 – double four poster bed, a chest of drawers, a wardrobe and an ensuite bathroom. The bathroom has a toilet, washbasin and bath with over-bath shower attachment.
Common facilities -
Central heating and hot water is provided by a modern combi-boiler. Free Wi-fi is also available throughout the cottage.
There is a cosy patio area supplied with a dining table, candles and a bbq which is a lovely space to eat and drink on a warm evening. In addition, to the side of the cottage is a private lawned area with access to the Grand Union canal towpath via a walk across the Manor fields. Two canal-side pubs are within easy walking distance along the towpath.
There is ample guest parking for two cars.
Guests have exclusive access to the cottage, the cottage garden and to the patio bbq area.
Smoking is not permitted inside the cottage and we regret that no children under 13, or pets, are allowed.
We live in the Manor house next door, so we will normally be available to provide help and assistance should you request it. We have one friendly dog (Bentley, a Golden Retriever) and as the grounds around the cottage are not fenced, he is likely to come and say hello in the hope of a fuss, or a treat !!
