A year in Nottingham Road
We've all heard of á year in Provence' i'm sure. Well I had my own very experience renovating my little cottage in the Hamlet of Fort Nottingham. The cottage is only approximately sixty square metres, so one would think a little renovation project would have moved along pretty quickly. I started the process in January 2013 and January 2014 the cottage is now available for rent.
It is the perfect little retreat for parents of a boarder scholar who want a semi permanent retreat for when visiting their child at either Michaelhouse or Clifton school. Located in the historical Hamlet of Fort Nottingham, set in a nature reserve, this little area offers perfect peace and privacy, with views over the neighbouring fields stabling foals and horses . A pretty little lock-up-and-go.
I've often heard boarder parents say that as lovely as a bed & breakfast is, the inconvenience of having to 'book out' of a place in the morning when your child only has to be at school in the evening can be a real bind. That is besides having to cart sports equipment from last season back and forth.
Rosewood Cottage is open plan: lounge, dining, granite kitchen with a huge stoop overlooking the one acre plot. The bedroom, with its anthracite stove for chilly evenings, has a romantic four poster bed with French armoire and French style shutters on the windows for a little siesta in the warm afternoons. Don't expect a TV - but rather bring your bicyle and walking shoes. The nature reserve offers more than enough entertainment.
