Hopping Hare Cottage sleeps up to 4 adults and 1 baby in 3 bedrooms with 1 bathroom. The traditional, dainty kitchen is chocolate-box pretty and leads into the lounge, where you can find ample seating and a cosy wood-burning stove. A ‘hare’ theme runs throughout the cottage which mirrors the wildlife in the fields beyond.
Opposite the cottage, in the separate garage building you will find a heated utility room with work-space, a washing machine, tumble dryer and radiators. This room is perfect for drying wet clothes as it’s fully heated and allows laundry to be kept out of the cottage, as well as being a good space to dry off wet dogs. There is also room for bike storage in here too. As well as the patio straight from the kitchen door, there is also a lawned garden approx. 100 yards from the property. As the cottages are a row of traditional farmers cottages, these gardens were originally used for vegetable patches but have now been transformed into lawned private spaces for relaxing.
Up to 2 dogs are welcome at £20 per holiday. Hopping Hare Cottage is located in the stunning countryside just outside of the village of Warkworth. It takes approx. 7-8 minutes to drive into Warkworth Village.
The main entrance to the cottage is to the rear of Hopping Hare Cottage and opens directly into the kitchen/dining room.
Entry to the cottage is directly into the kitchen area. The kitchen has been newly renovated in July 2020 (professional photos to follow) and is comprehensively fitted with a modern electric oven, integrated fridge and freezer, dishwasher, microwave, toaster and kettle. The dining area is furnished with a lovely solid oak refectory table and pew style forms, perfectly in-keeping with the ‘country cottage’ decor and style.
There is very useful utility room in a separate garage building directly opposite the cottage, housing a washing machine and tumble dryer, and the cottage has electric central heating with radiators throughout.
With a lovely outlook onto the front garden and beautiful open countryside towards the distant coastline, this cosy yet spacious lounge has a fabulous wood burning stove in an inglenook fireplace, a large screen Smart TV, iPod docking station, games console and DVD’s. Two large leather sofas and a large pouffe stool are perfectly positioned around the fire. There is a small selection of board games for all ages and a box of toys. Free Wi-Fi.
Opposite the cottage is a separate garage with a heated utility room. In here you will find the washing machine, tumble dryer, wash basin and space for hanging clothes and storing anything additional you bring on holiday. It’s a very useful space to have whilst on holiday.
