Access Guide – is Culls Cottage the perfect cottage for your stay?

Culls Cottage is a traditional stone built cottage the original part of which was built in the 1670s. As a consequence it has all the features and charm that are typical of an historic cottage, with some low beamed and slopping ceilings (upstairs) as well as some low doorways and some changes of level within the house.

We welcome all visitors but we know that this cottage may not be accessible for everyone, such as those in a wheelchair. We have included many pictures of the cottage on this site, plus many more on our Pinterest Pages. Do also take the ‘Step in Tour’ of Culls Cottage to make sure that it is the perfect cottage for your stay.

Parking

The cottage sits on the roadside in the heart of the rural village of Southrop and secure off street parking is available at the back of the cottage for up to four cars. Additional parking is available on the road outside the cottage and there are no parking restrictions. Entry to the off-street parking is limited in width and so larger cars may find it easier to park on the roadside.

Ground Floor

Access to the cottage is through the front door which has hard paving to it or a door at the rear via the gravel driveway. There is a gate and gravel path that runs up the side of the cottage to the back door which is lit during hours of darkness.  The back door leads directly into the lounge, which has a wood burning stove. The flooring throughout the ground floor is flag stones. Most of the ground floor is even and on the same level but there is a small step down into the kitchen area of approximately two inches.

There is a toilet and wet room shower area off the downstairs lounge and a bedroom also on the ground floor – so this house would suit someone who is not able to easily manage stairs.

First Floor

The stairs run off the lounge and are a good width and have a solid hand rail. The stairs is carpeted and the landing and bedrooms have wood paneled floors. The upstairs landing area has a change of level to bedroom number two and another change in level to the bathroom. This bathroom has an under floor heated stone floor and a luxury double ended bath and toilet.

The Garden

The garden is large and contains graveled areas and lawn, with a mature willow tree that provides shade in the summer. Having been recently landscaped the garden will continue to evolve with new plantings.
