We declare Puddle Cottage OPEN!
In the midst of all the renovation work we were doing on Puddle Cottage, I didn’t get a chance to update the blog with a picture of the official opening with Mum cutting the ribbon to declare Puddle Cottage open for business! After all the hard work that went into renovating Puddle Cottage, it was only right that we marked the occasion with all the family and a glass of fizz!
Puddle Cottage was built in 1849 and is situated in Edith Weston – a village on the south shore of Rutland Water with a village shop and local pub which serves food. The cottage is 160 years old and retains all the old character of an old cottage such as exposed beams and stone, as well as the open fire. But the cottage has now been renovated and offers all the charm of an old cottage but with all the mod cons you would expect when on holiday. The cottage now has central heating throughout, so as well as the open fire roaring in winter, you can snuggle up and keep warm through the winter months. There are modern appliances such as a washing machine, dishwasher, microwave and fridge freezer as well as a large flat screen TV with Freeview and DVD player. WIFI is also available to guests free of charge. Upstairs, the stairs and bedroom have had a thick wool carpet laid and the bedroom has a zip together super king sized bed which can also presented as two full sized single beds. A lot of hard work has also gone into the garden so when the weather allows, you can sit outside where fresh herbs grow and relax.
We are delighted that after all the work, Puddle Cottage was recently awarded its 4 stars by Quality in Tourism.
