The corrugated cottage was built in the spring of 1940, around the beginning of the Second World War when Britain felt under imminent threat of invasion.

A great weekend in the perfect setting. Every little detail was well thought out and the accommodation was very clean. Will be returning for another trip to 1940s country living

The location was perfect, tucked away and safe for young children, peaceful for an 'escape from it all break.' The cottage was charming and kept us comfortable and entertained all week, adults and kids alike. We had great weather and days out visiting Longleat, Dorset coast, Stonehenge, Glastonbury. Recommended and would visit again.
