The detail

Brooks Cottage sits in the grounds of one our more famous properties - Great Fulford, setting for such reality TV shows as Life is Toff and starring the estate's owner, the larger-than-life character Francis Fulford. While you can rent out all the grandeur of the main house, this beautiful cottage is a fantastic place to stay with a real feeling of country charm.

‘Interiors’ magazine described Lower Brook in 1990 as being ‘a cottage that grows out of field in Devon. Meadow grass and wild flowers creep up to the cobbled front step, hills bristling with oak thickets rise up on two sides of the house, and brooks border the others. There is no sign of any other human habitation, not even a tarmac road.’
The same holds true today, some twenty-four years later!

Brooks Cottage dates back to the 1500's, and truly appears built into the landscape, tucked into the steep slope that flanks the cottage. The house is wonderfully preserved due to being tucked awayt from the elements, and boasts an astonishing array of original features.

Stepping through the front door you find a large sitting room to the left with grand open fire, and plenty of cosy seating. Some good books can be found on the shelves and a backgammon board. There is also basic Sky television, Wi-Fi and an iPod dock.

To the right of the entrance is the fully equipped kitchen, complete with an Aga, a Magimix and basic cooking bits like olive oil, salt, and eggs from the estate. There's also an open fire in the kitchen with logs ready to be lit.

The entire first floor boasts atmospheric high ceilings that add a subtle atomsphere of grandure to this quaint cottage. Two bedrooms on the first floor, one to the left and one to the right of the stairs. One bedroom is en-suite and the other bathroom is on the landing. The bedrooms come with really comfortable (and very large beds) with luxurious linen.

Outside there's a rear garden with small pond. A tennis court is roughly 10 minutes walk away and if it is hot, there is a lake to swim in - only a 20 minutes walk away.
