Sterling Cottage & Annexe
Sleeps up to 18 - 7 Bedrooms - Hot Tub - Snooker Table - Bar Area
Perfect party house with a hot tub, cosy log burner & more!
Experience a quaint setting filled with charm and character from the moment you arrive through the electric gates at Sterling Cottage, with its grade II listed status and pretty thatched roof. As you enter, you will discover exposed beams, low ceilings and doorways, and a cosy log burner to make you feel instantly at home. This is combined seamlessly with modern luxuries and contemporary additions, striking the most elegant balance to suit all tastes. Located in Langport in rural Somerset, this stunning cottage and additional annexe is the perfect venue for a relaxed hen party escape.
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 kick back and relax 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 your family and friends and do a spot of birthday 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 choice of calming spa treatments to indulge in, all brought to you.
You can also opt to dine al-fresco together 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 family need for a retreat 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.
On the ground floor Bedroom 1 boasts an Emperor-sized double bed sleeping two guests, and has an en-suite shower room with WC, so you can curl straight up after a hot shower and relax. The bed in this room can be made into two singles if you wish. On the first floor, Bedroom 2 has a standard double bed sleeping two guests. Bedroom 3 sleeps up to four guests in both a zip link double bed which can be separated into singles, and a sofa bed accommodating two. Bedroom 4 is extra special, with a King-sized wooden carved four poster bed, which adds charm and character to the cottage, sleeping two. There is a bathroom for the use of bedrooms 2, 3 and 4, with a wet room, shower and WC. Bedroom 4 is linked to Bedroom 5 by a low and narrow door, and as you lead through you will discover an Emperor-sized bed sleeping two guests, and a private bathroom for the exclusive use of Bedroom 5, with a beautiful roll-top bath, WC and separate shower.
Within the Annexe on the first floor, Bedroom 6 has a King-sized double zip-link bed, which can be separated into two singles. Bedroom 7 boasts a super King-sized double zip-link bed, which can again be separated if your group wishes. This bedroom has an additional sofa bed which sleeps a further two guests. A bathroom is situated within the Annexe providing shower-mixer taps, a bath and WC.
