Sitting in its own secluded + very beautiful garden, here Verbena Cottage basks in the evening sun.
Verbena Cottage is situated in 18 acres of stunning gardens and woodland. Fancy a row on the lake?
Here's the relaxing lounge area with 42inch Freeview TV, wood burning stove and comfy seating for 4.
A luxury kitchen and a dining table for four make this a great place to eat.
The luxury kitchen is very well equipped with all mod cons; including granite worktops.
The smart kitchen has open views down to the lake.
The spacious and comfy bedroom has a TV and a luxury, super kingsize bed.
A great place to spend a relaxing Sunday morning.
Although ultra-modern, little touches add interest. Another window with a view to the lake.
The modern ensuite bathroom has a full size bath and a luxurious walk-in shower.
For those who prefer a nice hot soak, as well as shower the en-suite is equipped with a bath.
The view back from the en-suite bathroom to the bedroom.
Ready for a bottle of wine? The patio is a great place to watch the sun go down over the lake.
The summer house by the lake. One guest called it 'a magic place'.
You're welcome to use the summer house for a meal by the lake, or to relax and read a book.
The seat by the lake. A wonderful relaxing place to read the newspaper or a book.
The huge gardens have far-reaching vistas and drifts of plants. Don't forget your camera!
Verbena Cottage has its own private garden on three sides.
A peacock butterfly alights on a flower to drink the nectar.
In the meadow, wild orchids appear every year; though you'll need to hunt them out.
In autumn, a majestic white stag stands in a field which forms part of the 18 acres.
In a corner of the lake there's a hide. If you're lucky you might see a busy kingfisher.
A network of interesting woodland paths twist and turn through the trees around the 18 acres.
Carp bask in the warm surface water of the lake on a summer afternoon.
A woodland path wends its way around the lake, here seen in the winter sun.
The entrance to Lower Winsford Farm, where you'll find Verbena Cottage. Parking is straight ahead.

“The perfect getaway for couples”
Reviewed 8 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Verbena Cottage is just perfect! All on one level, so good for those who find stairs difficult. Everything is top quality, the bed is huge and very comfortable, and the shower could double as some sort of Star Trek style transporter!
The outside is no less pleasing - outside the back door are the grounds - good for bird watching and a lake with a boat for brave and energetic people.
The owners, Anne and John, were there to welcome us and go through the basics, which was nice. And there was home made cake - never a bad thing...
We hope to be back!

“Peaceful”
Reviewed 10 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A haven of tranquility in beautiful surroundings. Only slight down is a poor road surface for 1/2 mile to house but well worth it. Lovely gardens.

Thanks for the very fair 5-star review, Jim.

Sorry about the lane but it's outside our control as the lane is shared with several other properties who all think it's fine :-) But glad you feel the journey is "well worth it". At least it makes us nice and quiet!
