    Property description
    Condo/Apartment – 
    Studio, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    * Set at the top of beautiful Shapridge Hill at the end of a quiet track, Little Owl is the perfect romantic getaway. Ideal for walkers and nature lovers, footpaths lead from the front door onto a vast network of Forest paths and tracks, you can literally walk for miles!

    • The studio benefits from a large wildlife garden with its own birdhide and excellent views. Feeders are provided with plenty of nuts and seeds for you to top them up if you wish. If you love wildlife, you will love the garden, for example watching the swallows skimming the surface of the pond for insects in summer and witnessing the house martins mobbing a hobby overhead! .

    Additional amenities & feature info
    Access to the studio is via three steps, then the interior accomodation is all on one level. .There is one designated parking space no more than 10 metres from the front door. There is a gravelled level pathway from the parking space to the accomodation and is therefore suitable for those with restricted mobility, although not wheelchair users owing to the steps.

    Although the studio is part of our new build, and above our own garage, the accomodation is totally private having it's own front door from the neighbouring Shapridge Common. The property benefits from a number of large velux
    windows (with blinds) providing plenty of light and a single glazed door.

    There is a fitted kitchen with breakfast bar. There is a large flatscreen TV and Blu Ray DVD

Enjoyed three nights at 'Little Owl', the perfect getaway for two to go. Excellent instructions from the hosts, which meant that the cottage was very easy to find despite arriving in the dark, with a very atmospheric drive along a bumpy track on the last leg. In a rural setting with quite spectacular views, the cottage is well situated, in... more
