Property Information

Sterling Cottage and Annexe provide the perfect portion of indulgence, boasting features from Chesterfield leather sofas and a baby grand piano to a carved wooden four-poster bed and enclosed gardens with a croquet lawn. You can truly be ladies of leisure during your pre-wedding festivities with luxuries such as the American style fridge with ice maker in the well-equipped kitchen, where you can top up your tipple before hopping into the private hot tub. The peaceful atmosphere is counteracted conveniently by the bustling town of Langport situated just half a mile away, and you can choose to venture out on country walks with the girls and do a spot of shopping, or stay in your cosy retreat and enjoy our creative and tailor made packages, such as a delicious three course meal prepared and cooked by a private chef, or a butler in the buff who will serve drinks and mingle with your party to make for an enjoyable evening filled with unforgettable memories. 

You can also opt to dine al-fresco on the terrace on a sunny afternoon which is a warming suntrap during the summer months. Retire as your night draws in, to one of the seven beautifully furnished bedrooms within the cottage and annexe, which of course will provide no less than 400 thread count cotton bed linen for a peaceful and relaxing slumber. Sterling Cottage is just what you and your girls need for a hen party to remember.

Hot Tub & Living Spaces

As you walk into the idyllic thatched cottage, you will be greeted by the inviting entrance-hall, with a downstairs WC room. As you saunter through to the well-equipped kitchen you will find all the appliances you need, with a beautiful granite work surface throughout. The door from the kitchen leads to the rear terrace and garden, so let the light and air in while you relax during breakfast. The kitchen also has a pantry to store your goods, and is complete with a washing machine and dryer if you choose to stay for an extended time. Also on the ground floor is a music room with its very own baby grand piano, fantastic for the music enthusiasts, and this also makes for an elegant photo backdrop, for lasting memories you can take away with you.
Follow through to the dining room where you will find a large dining table to seat sixteen to eighteen guests, with a majestic feature fireplace and log burner. In the sitting room, there is a large sofa, great for gathering round for pamper parties with your friends, but mind your heads, the exposed beams in here and in the TV room make for low headroom. The first floor can be accessed from either of these spaces.
In the separate Annexe, there is a large games room with a snooker table, dart board, bar area, and a WC with access to the croquet and badminton lawn to take your celebration (and competition!) outside if you wish. The private hot tub is also located outside the cottage, a cosy bubbling sanctuary on a cool evening.

Due to the sheer amount of admin and increased costs we may be only able to offer postponements with an amendment fee of £75 for 2021 dates and £115 for 2022 dates.

We have to deal with all bookings in date order and our customer care team will be working around the clock to offer the best customer service possible, however we kindly ask you for your patience and if you could kindly wait until we contact you due to a high volume of emails we are experiencing.

  • However there is a possibility more restrictions may lift from the 17th May, which is also set out in the road map depending on government data, so once we know the restrictions by law for these dates we will contact all guests who have booked from the 18th May 2021 – 21st June 2021.

Please note: Any premature cancellations will be subject to our normal terms and conditions.

All Balances for any bookings due to stay from  the 17th May do have to be paid on time to keep your booking in place, any balance not paid may result in your booking being cancelled and loss of any deposit paid.
