These these luxurious 5 Star Gold award winning cottages  enjoy an elevated position in glorious countryside and offer everything you could possibly need for a relaxing break. Four 17th century barns have been lovingly restored/converted into high class self-catering accommodation, with each cottage attractively furnished and exposed beams and stonework retaining much of the original character.

Dog friendly, our cottages are in the ideal location with many reservoirs and trails on the doorstep.

We are also on hand during your stay to answer any queries or provide information which will enable you to make the most of your break at our beautiful cottages.


    The Spa


    Our very own revitalising rural retreat. Having travelled extensively in South East Asia we always came home with a wish to emulate the outstanding facilities and service that we found in their spa’s. Inspired by the relaxing, calming and revitalising aura that we experienced we set about designing our very own Spa here to complement our five-star luxury cottages.

    As our lives become increasingly busy it has never been more important to find that elusive ‘me’ time, a little snippet of time to relax, recharge and revitalise. Our spa provides a haven in which to enjoy incredible facilities set within stunning countryside to energise the soul.

    Our facilities include steam rooms, sauna’s, foot spa’s, aromatherapy room, tropical experience shower and a Rasul mud room as well as an outdoor area with outdoor wood fired hot tub. A modern , contemporary style of finishes and glass opens up this area highlighting the space and calming atmosphere within our thermal suite.

    We have three exquisitely designed treatment rooms (one a double treatment room) to experience the wonders of Temple Spa and the unique collection of facials/ scrubs and massages. We were delighted to discover Temple Spa and felt their ethos and products were a perfect fit with Smallshaw and complemented the vision for our Spa perfectly.

    Enhancing our spa experience we have a gorgeously designed quiet room perfect for taking a step back from the outside world to retreat into a haven of relaxation. What an idyllic way to finish off the Spa Experience by unwinding in here perhaps even with a glass of Prosecco.

    An exquisite nail room for manciures/ pedicures and Shellac completes our exciting new addition to Smallshaw.
