Papworth’s Cottage, CB24

Papworth’s Cottage, CB24

The cottage is early 18C and has been newly renovated throughout, with newly treated and stripped beams and modern bathroom and farmhouse style kitchen. The ceilings are low throughout so persons over 6ft tall will need to stoop in most areas!

The layout is rather quirky as originally the building was two separate cottages. There are two separate staircases which open out onto 2 small bedrooms either side giving 4 bedrooms in total.

Each side of the cottage has two small bedrooms. On one side the main bedroom has a kingsize bed (with storage drawers underneath) and directly opposite this is another room with a single bed and a cot and chest of drawers for clothes. There are no doors on these bedrooms to make it easy for parents (like myself) with a baby and young child.

On the other side the two bedrooms both have doors, there is a double bed in one room with storage drawers underneath it and in the child’s bedroom opposite there are bunk beds and a large chest of drawers for storing clothes. Please note that if you want to make use of the bunk beds then you will need to make up the beds yourselves and strip the sheets afterwards as the good elderly lady taking care of the linen changing cannot manage this task!

There is one main bathroom downstairs with bath and shower and one separate guest toilet. both of which are newly renovated.

The downstairs living area is open plan with 3 parts to the living room and a breakfast room adjoining the kitchen which looks out onto a good sized private garden with an apple tree.
