Siobhan, Tim & Tia The Spaniel
We live in a beautiful Grade II listed thatch cottage and old former Forge. HOF Cottage is directly adjacent to it. HOF means Hillside Old Forge - so nothing German like you'd think. We think it was built in 1650's so it has bags of character and charm. The place is split into 2 properties to rent- HOF Cottage, the Forgekeeper's cottage with lovely old thick walls and original features, a small outside courtyard for you to use as you wish. HOF Hut is in the garden above HOF Cottage and comes with a handbuilt Japanese Hot tub and chillout decking/bar area. You sadly can only rent HOF Cottage on Booking dotcom and will need to search online for Hofnorthlew to rent the hut (Booking dotcom don't allow hosts to have 2 properties at the same address).
Myself (Siobhan) and husband Tim live here with our Springer Tia and a cat called Bob. I'm the creative one who does all the cleaning so I would generally just be me you see.
Northlew is full of interesting and artistic (some say mad) people- we're a great welcoming bunch, you just need to scratch the surface and find out for yourself- generally a good place to start is our local pub The Green Dragon. (Which is 2 min walk away from the cottage). You do need a car to get around in- for getting to the shops and pretty much everything else :-)
