We have created the Cottages and have maintained them with a passion that has endured for more than twenty years.
The location is sensational: looking West over the Atlantic - next stop America - and North up to Lundy Island to the Welsh Coast beyond.
The Cottages, grouped around a large courtyard, reflect the men and women who created the original farm courtyard over the centuries.
Every cottage is a beautiful building and each has lovely features drawn from its history. During the conversion works we added to these features and know that some will be present in a hundred years time: the slate floors on the ground floor in every cottage, a mixture of Chinese and African slates, are fabulous; every staircase was built on site in pine by a craftsman working for us and are antiques of the future; many of the window cills are made of local slates and many have ancient oak lintels; the roofs of every cottage are reclaimed slate procured from reclamation yards around the county etc. etc.
Our objective is simple: we live at Downe and we wish every visitor to be delighted with their cottage.
We provide holiday accommodation that is:
Warm whatever the weather.
Well equipped so that they each is truly "Home from Home".
Beautiful to look at both internally and externally.
With well maintained, spacious grounds.
In addition there is a spacious and well equipped gym and spa of exceptional quality.
We welcome visitors and show them into their cottage; we show visitors around the Gym and Spa facilities; we are on hand to resolve any problem that might occur during the visit and we are there to say farewell at the end of the visit. We ensure that the cottage delivers everything that we promise.
