Welcome to

Yew Tree Cottage

Unwind in this beautifully restored Grade II listed, 17th Century farmers cottage with wooden beams, original exposed ironwork and a wood-burning, salt-water hot tub.

We can arrange for a beautician to visit the cottage for facials, pedicures and massages.

Nourish mind, body & soul

Treat yourself to an indulgent afternoon sipping champagne in the wood burning hot tub as the sounds of birdsong and bubbles wash away the world or settle down for a game of chess at the early 19th century chess table.

Hands down the best place I've stayed in the UK and the best experience. Gemma went out of her way to ensure we had a lovely stay by recommeding tons of dog friendly and vegan friendly places. The cottage is goregous, the salts in the hot tub make you feel so relaxed, the light and airy bedroom with the comfiest sheets, the personal touches such as the robes, the slippers, the bookswap, the board games..Even the hand soap is to die for.

Fully enclosed front and rear patio.

You'll find privacy at Yew Tree Cottage behind the rose covered gateway. With a fully enclosed front and rear garden, you'll be able to relax after a long day exploring while you sit back taking in the sun as you listening to the sound of the birds (and maybe the occasional donkey).

King sized bed

Enjoy the exposed wooden beams and original structural ironwork upstairs from the large kind size bed with Egyptian cotton linens.

Log burning hot tub

Enjoy your evening staring at the stars. The hot tub is designed for up to six people so you can literally lie back and enjoy the smell of the integral log burner, no matter what the weather holds.

A full log shed (we refill it every 3/4 days)

No one wants to shop for logs when they're away, so we refill the log shed when we come and replace the water in the hot tub. We'll also supply kindling and eco friendly firelighters.

Wetroom with walk in shower

The bathroom is a wet room with a walk in shower and underfloor heating. The large shower has one large overhead shower-head plus a second shower head on a hose to make sure you can direct water exactly where you need it...or rinse off a dirty little pup.

Garden room with folding doors

No matter what the weather holds, enjoy sitting back in your chair with a brew while you breathe in the country air. With full width folding doors that open up, you can enjoy the feeling of being outdoors, while relaxing inside.

Village pub

Warm your feet in front of one of the three open fires which burn for ten months of the year. This family run former coachhouse is a literal stones throw away from the front door of the cottage.

Contactless Check in & out

Check in is via a key box so you can arrive and depart at your convenience. You'll recieve they key code 5 days before check in.

Dog Friendly

You're welcome to bring two well behaved small-medium dogs or one larger dog to stay. The cottage is not suitable for very large dogs. We provide dog blankets, dog towel and emergency poo bags. No dogs are allowed upstairs and a stair gate will be provided. There is no additional charge for bringing your dog. The pub across the road is dog friendly.

Off road parking & lockable bike shed

Private parking is at the rear of the property. There is also a lockable bike shed so you can safely store your bike and any other large item you don't need to take into the house. All parking in Burythorpe and surrounding villages is free and plentiful.

Do you have...

You'll get towels, dressing gowns and bedding. There is a hairdryer, fan, hot water bottle, iron and washing line. There is a fridge, freezer, oven, electric hob, kettle, Nespresso machine (with pods), toaster and microwave. You'll also find enough of the boring stuff you don't really want to pack (I'm talking dishwasher tabs, toilet roll, bin bags, washing up liquid etc) plus the things you want but may forget like Nespresso pods, tea bags and sugar. We provide a laundry service as there's no washing machine. Choose from my "I'll dry it on my Aga for free" option, or a paid service where we'll drop it at the laundrette for you.

Underfloor heating

You won't need your slippers for anything other than popping out to the hot tub with underfloor heating throughout the ground floor of the cottage. And with a Nest thermostat control, you can easily set the temperature that you find most comfortable.

Outdoor seating & BBQ

Relax outside at the wicker bar while you smell the sizzle of your sausages. Charcoal is provided for your first couple of BBQ's. There are BBQ utensils in the bike shed. You're also welcome to move the wicker sofa and coffee table outdoors for a more casual evening.


Stay connected (if you want to) when you hook yourself up to the cottage WiFi or simply use it to log the flatscreen TV into your Netflix account so you can laze away your evenings on the sofa. (You may be wondering...) Is the Wi-Fi any good? I've had Zoom meetings with 16 people without any problems. Live TV lagged a couple of times during the Kings Coronation.

Fantastic stay! The cottage is wonderful but the hosts are even better! Sprinkled across the cottage are many thoughtful, useful and helpful touches that really show they care about the visitors experience. Highest recommendation.
