Leicestershire, England
Built at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries as a mill-worker's dwelling, Kingfisher Cottage is in the village of Barrow upon Soar, Leicestershire, England. Semi-detached (adjoining another property), it is basically 2 reception, 2 bedroom, and 2 bath, the kitchen and living room having been combined to form a mini great-room. Accommodation is provided for 4 to 6 people, master bedroom having a king size bed, 2nd bedroom two singles. Sitting room offers a double sofa/bed, and living room a small settee/flop-out single bed.

What a fantastic find on the internet! This cottage is a real home from home! It is a very pretty, cosy, cottage with lots of charm and supplied with just about everything you may need!

The cottage was extremely clean and tidy and the bedrooms were beautiful especially the main bedroom with balcony overlooking the garden. The cottage was beautifully warm when we arrived and although we...
