2013

Welcome to Premier Cottages Welcome to Premier Cottages - the finest collection of four and five Star graded self catering accommodation in the British Isles and Ireland. No other group of self catering properties can boast as many independent awards for quality, accessibility and sustainability (see pages 6-7 for more details). All Premier Cottages properties offer All Inclusive pricing (see page 5).

What is Premier Cottages? Premier Cottages really is different. It’s not a booking agency. It’s an organisation of independent self catering holiday cottage owners, brought together by the shared aim of providing the very highest quality self catering holiday accommodation. Established 13 years ago, Premier Cottages now represents nearly 1000 cottages in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, the Isles of Scilly and the Channel Islands. Many other cottage collections claim to have the best properties, however at Premier Cottages we can substantiate our claim with a consistent and unrivalled record of both regional and national award winning cottages. This fantastic track record reflects the hard work and commitment of our owners who, as professional self caterers rather than second home owners, are passionate about providing a top quality product and whose aim is to ensure that you have a fantastic holiday. For the most recent awards see The Awards section on page 275. For a full list of our awards, visit premiercottages.co.uk and check out the awards page. Premier Cottages Members also work together to raise money for charities. To read about the work we have done for Help for Heroes see page 150 and to find out what we are doing to raise money for our new charity, Macmillan Cancer Support see page 219.

All members of Premier Cottages are collective members of EASCO (English Association of Self Catering Operators), WASCO (Wales Association of Self Catering Operators) or ASSC (Association of Scotland’s Self Caterers.) These associations work to improve standards within the self catering sector for both guests and owners alike.

Four and Five Star Premier Cottages only accepts high 4 or 5 Star rated properties and acceptance into Membership is based purely on quality, not a willingness to pay for advertising space. In addition to achieving a 4 or 5 star grading, each new property is also assessed by an experienced Member before acceptance. Only exceptional properties with owners who understand the priority is the guest experience are accepted.

Four Star Many 4 Star properties will feature facilities that are expected of 5 Star properties, so it is always best to check with the owner directly about any special requirements or questions. By choosing a VisitEngland, Visit Wales or VisitScotland 4 Star cottage, you can expect to stay in a cottage rated excellent at inspection. It will be spacious with very good quality furniture, soft furnishings, beds and floorings, and decorated to a high standard.

Five Star By choosing a VisitEngland, Visit Wales or VisitScotland 5 Star cottage, you can expect to stay in a cottage rated exceptional or world class at inspection. It will demonstrate the best of its type available, showing attention to detail in design, both internal and external, and exemplary standards of care and maintenance.

Gold Award VisitEngland’s unique Gold Awards are given in recognition of exceptional quality within a property's star rating, or for outperforming a star rating. Full details of the grading system for self catering can be found at qualityintourism.com/asp/selfcatering.asp

Green Tourism Business Scheme Awards This national scheme has over 2,300 members, all committed to running their businesses in an environmentally sustainable manner. Each Member has their business inspected by a GTBS assessor who inspects more than 200 individual measures within the business. The resulting marks are presented as follows: Awaiting Grading: property has joined scheme and is preparing for assessment. Bronze award: all basic processes to reduce waste, energy and water are in place. A good sustainable business.

YOU will end up dragging THEM along to the soft play.

Bedroom - Spice Cottage

They are immaculate inside, with calming white and beige colour schemes, Laura Ashley furniture and well lit modern kitchens and bathrooms. In the light and airy bedrooms upstairs you may expect hotel standard everything, from pocket sprung beds to feather down pillows, to pretty baskets of toiletries. Once you’ve explored the Devon coast or the enchanting gardens of Rosemoor, how delightful to return to Culverhayes’ own lovely acres with large pond and croquet lawn, greenhouse and restored kitchen garden – where you can help yourself to surplus in season. Upon arrival you are welcomed by a basket of local goodies and a Devon cream tea that, in the winter, you can tuck into by the log fire and why not book supper at the pub – a three minute stroll down the hill.

May we welcome you to Culverhayes. Set in 10 acres of West Devon's unspoilt countryside, Culverhayes is a mansion built by the architect Henry Lloyd in 1860; it has two 17th century cob and stone cottages set in its grounds and is situated above the thatched village of Sampford Courtenay, famous for the 1549 Prayer Book Rebellion. It's a pretty grand setting, the gardens are lovely and you are away from the tourist trail; four miles from Dartmoor National Park and a half hour from Exeter cathedral city. Each cottage has its own distinct outdoor area – terrace with wooden tables and chairs, a lawn with sunloungers – and are just perfect for a group of friends. Hopetown Cottage was once the carriage house, Spice Cottage the stables.

www.flearcountry.com Flear Country nestles amidst the rolling hills of the South Hams.

It is an ideal holiday location if you want to leave behind the strains of city living and relax in a peaceful rural setting. You can wander along pretty streams, explore rambling woods and trek over undulating hills. Flear Country is well situated, not just because of its seclusion, but also because ‘civilisation’ isn’t far away. The nearest village, East Allington, which boasts an excellent gastro pub, is just a short distance. The town of Kingsbridge, with its cafés and restaurants, is only a 10 minute drive and the nearest beaches are 20 minutes away. Flear offers an ideal environment for families who make use of the special facilities provided for children including the indoor and outdoor play areas. It would equally appeal to nature lovers who appreciate the beauty of Devon’s countryside and coastline. Our twelve individually furnished properties and Flear House are available year-round for short breaks and weekly stays.

Lakeside Cottage South Hams - the jewel in the crown of the South West

Cottage across lake

Sitting room

En suite

Bedroom


Devon

www.lakesidecottagedevon.com Lakeside, an exclusive 5 Star Gold Award boutique cottage with a rare 100% scoring throughout, is just for two people wishing to spend some quality time together.

At dawn the kingfisher and heron fish off the handrail of the Monet-style bridge, dusk brings out the little bats swooping over the lake and the wary foxes, badgers and owls.

Set in a breathtaking green oasis of calm and tranquillity, the cottage sits on its own by the lake in two acres of the four acre grounds of the owners' home, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty surrounded by Green Belt.

Lakeside Cottage comprises a hallway and four rooms: sitting room with a squashy leather chaise longue sofa and inglenook log-and-coal open gas fire; bedroom with a king-size woven flax bed (Vi-spring mattress) and matching sofa with footstool; en suite with an amazing steam/shower/whirlpool bath cabinet and a well fitted kitchen with matching granite worktop and flooring. All main rooms have large windows giving panoramic views of the lake and grounds and the central heating is a cosy combination of radiators and underfloor heating for all year letting.

The lake and its surroundings are unique, an extremely vibrant and natural wildlife habitat, with breeding pairs of moorhens, ducks and for a second year, in 2012 a pair of mute swans which produced six cygnets in April, not due to fly until about February. No guarantees, of course, for 2013! Ruggedly beautiful Dartmoor is 3 miles away, the Erme Valley Trail passes the entrance to Lakeside. The lovely beaches of the South Hams are nearby. A short drive will take you to historic Totnes where you can go around a ruined castle, visit Dartington Hall with one of the finest English gardens. Visit the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth, Saltram House (NT), Paignton Zoo, Buckfast Abbey, Cornwall's Eden Project, and the Jurassic Coast.

Patio and lake

If you wish to come to a complete standstill, chilling out on the terrace by the waterfall is favourite. Lakeside is a secluded wildlife haven of dragonflies, butterflies, damselflies, moorhens, buzzards, rabbits and squirrels.

The Watermill

Woodlands Farmhouse

Located in stunning Exmoor National Park

Luxuriously equipped historic farmhouse overlooking Glastonbury Tor

The Watermill

Woodlands Farmhouse

Nestled in the peaceful Hawkcombe valley, within beautiful Exmoor National Park, lays a charming 19th century watermill. A short distance from the sea and a stroll from Porlock Village makes this a superb setting for your holiday. Originally a corn mill, then in later years it supplied electricity for Porlock’s street lights. Lovingly restored, it has been luxuriously furnished with antiques and sumptuous soft furnishings. Sitting in an acre of terraced gardens, with a waterfall and river frontage, it's the perfect place to indulge. From your doorstep walk into the ancient Hawkcombe Woods and up onto the top of Exmoor, home to red deer and wild ponies. Porlock Weir, just over a mile away, a quaint little harbour great for birdwatching.

SPECIAL FEATURES Central heating and woodburner Dishwasher and washer/dryer Private gardens with parking Pubs and restaurants 500 metres Balcony off lounge – over the watermill River frontage

Woodlands Farmhouse combines the heritage and charm of an historic grade II listed farm, with the chic of 21st century living, achieving a Gold Award in addition to its 5 Star grading. It has seven bedrooms, (one of which is located on the ground floor and ideal for those who prefer not to use stairs) and sleeps 14 very comfortably. The house was completely renovated over two years, using the finest craftsmen to restore features such as the inglenook fireplaces, old bread oven, original flagstones and large elm floorboards, to name but a few. Whilst preserving the old, we have also added style and comfort, with luxuries such as the hot tub, cinema room, wet room showers and bespoke designer kitchen.

It lies in a romantic setting with fabulous southerly views over undulating pasture spread with magnificent mature oak trees.

The Eastnor Castle Estate lies in the southern foothills of the Malvern Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and close to the ancient market town of Ledbury. Eastnor Castle itself sits in the centre of the estate and is the family home of James Hervey-Bathurst, a descendant of the 1st Earl Somers who commissioned the castle. The castle was designed by Robert Smirke, later better known for his work on the British Museum, and the first stone was laid in 1812. Eastnor is the perfect holiday retreat, giving visitors easy access to the surrounding countryside with miles of unspoilt walks and cycle ways.

Using Swallow Cottages as a base, it is possible to walk or cycle along quiet traffic-free lanes, and reach all of the north Norfolk coast. Swallow Cottages have a large enclosed south facing garden overlooking meadows and open countryside within a conservation area. All the cottages are within easy reach of north Norfolk’s attractions and places of interest. Guests particularly enjoy visiting National Trust properties such as Blickling Hall and Sheringham Park, The North Norfolk Steam Railway, Seal Trips from Morston and taking boat trips on the Norfolk Broads.

Poppyland Holiday Cottages offer eight individual properties in the unspoilt coastal and rural north Norfolk villages of Aylmerton, Overstrand and Wickmere. Aylmerton, two miles from the coast, has Felbrigg Hall and its Humphry Repton inspired parkland and woods as its neighbour, just a few minutes walk from Hollybrook Cottage. Overstrand, a crab fishing village just to the east of Cromer and within walking distance along the beach or by the cliff top path, has expansive safe sandy beaches ideal for young children to build sand castles, play beach cricket, or hunt for crabs. Guests can walk to the beach within minutes from any of our Overstrand cottages. In its Edwardian heyday it was known as the village of millionaires due to the number of wealthy homeowners,

It takes a little effort to reach West Wales, that’s all part of the holiday. Feel your cares fall away as you head to the undiscovered Celtic fringe (like Cornwall ten years ago). Take blustery autumn walks on the deserted beaches then snuggle up with a hot chocolate in front of the woodburner in your cosy cottage or go in search of bluebell woods opening onto dramatic coastline in late spring and in summer soak up the sunshine on wide open stunning beaches. Plenty of fun for little people and relaxation for grown ups.

Rickyard Cottage

This is a wonderful unspoilt part of Wales, with terrific walking, sandy coves and beaches, sailing, canoeing, fishing and golf. The little harbour town of New Quay, one time home of Dylan Thomas is just three miles away, with the Georgian town of Aberaeron, inspired by Nash, just up the coast. The university town of Aberystwyth lies 30 miles to the north and the market town of Cardigan is 12 miles to the south. All cottages have been recently stylishly refurbished. Locally handmade oak kitchens fully equipped with stainless steel appliances, underfloor heating, fully fitted bathrooms with power showers, hot water supplied by a Baxi biomass boiler and oak furniture throughout provide you with all modern comforts.

8 times winners of Wales in Bloom. Neuadd lives just up the lane from this breathtaking National Trust coastline with its coastal paths. The farm cottages are some of the prettiest in Wales, nestling in delightful flower filled gardens and grounds, with lots of places to sit and dream, read a book or just gaze at the views. Our heated swimming pool is a real suntrap, with mangers full of flowers on its white walls. The views over the valley and the lake make it a very special spot for relaxing in the sun. Younger children delight in the Wendy house whilst the older ones can enjoy the adventure playground away from the cottages. Wander to the lake in the valley, watch the fish and ducks and make friends with our donkeys, goats, pigs, horse, rabbits and sheep.
