The cottage is tastefully decorated, featuring contemporary works by renowned local artists and potters including Nicola Werner. Visitors have full use of the owners’ heated swimming pool. A short walk away lies the village of Hemyock with its Castle, shops, take away, excellent pub, Post Office, floodlit tennis courts, boules court, bowling green, dispensing doctor's surgery and a garage for emergency car repairs.

Shillings cottage is the only holiday cottage and shares the extensive gardens and grounds with the resident owners. Much of this is a beautiful garden. Here and there among the well-stocked borders and in sheltered spots are seats and sun loungers from which to relish the sense of peace and enjoy far reaching views. The entire garden is surrounded by meadows.

If you wander down to the pond you can sit and watch the ducks, geese and dragonflies. Look out for roe deer, herons and rabbits and listen for sounds of pheasants and the cries of buzzards as they circle overhead.
