Hot Tub optional extra*

Indawo
Midden Cottage is a quaint one-up-one-down with an extension bathroom and has been renovated over the years using pine and warm fittings, to contrast with the old and give it a feeling of light and warmth.

I provide a 'welcome hamper basket', including a treat for your arrival and provisions for a "Continental" style breakfast for you to help yourselves to - including fruit, a choice of cereals and croissants, or bread (from our local bakers when possible), along with free range eggs from our neighbour's hens (when available!) We also provide a selection of jam, marmalade, honey and marmite.
Tea, coffee, sugar and fresh milk will be at the cottage for you to have refreshments when you get there, and during your stay - and there is a cafetière for ground coffee.

I take pride in providing whatever guests may require for when staying in a self contained cottage, and making the cottage a home from home - having all the simple necessities along with the odd luxury.

* There is an optional hot tub spa on the patio area of the private garden adjacent to the cottage. This is a Lay-Z-Spa 'Paris' hot tub, with an airjet massage system, which can be booked separately.
[Unfortunately Airbnb do not have the provision to add extra things on their bookings system so I have needed to do this independently.]…
The hot tub is filled with spring-water and we provide additional towels and towelling robes.
It has the option of a built-in coloured LED lighting system and we have fairy lights in the garden for a magical evening ‘under the stars’.
I offer the hot tub spa is an optional extra as not all guests want to use it and it’s a big job to get ready, heat & maintain.
The hot tub can be booked at an additional £50, for two people for your stay (and £25 extra per additional person).
Please message me if you have any queries or if you would like to book the hot tub. (Payment for this is usually sorted with me via bank transfer.)

More about the cottage…

The downstairs has part-mullioned casement windows, period Yorkstone flooring with an Indian rug in the centre of the living/dining area and a wood-burning stove to cosy up to in the evening.
The pine open plan staircase leads up to the bedroom/upstairs lounge area, which has two exposed wooden beams and a high (for its size) apex ceiling with skylight.
The upstairs is a light airy room with a raised pine, built-in, king size bed. The room is carpeted and also has a thick cream Berber wool rug for additional comfort and a cast iron electric fire provides instant heat for when needed.
A super comfy mattress, luxurious down duvet & pillows and, a duel controlled electric blanket add the finishing touches of comfort for your stay “The bed was like heaven”.

The cottage has been renovated to keep its traditional features with comfort whilst keeping a simple rustic quality.
This isn’t a ‘show home’. It has all the necessary amenities and more however, with certain quirkinesses of an older conversion and there are still things on our ‘never ending’ ‘to do list’.

The extension bathroom, on the ground floor, has both a bath and shower.
The cottage has a very well equipped kitchen for those who enjoy 'home-cooking' whilst away and a BBQ/fire pit in the garden for those who like alfresco meals.

We have put together a guest booklet at the cottage which provides information about the nearest shops; pubs; restaurants; places to visit and details of various local walks along with an OS map.
We have also created a few Guidebooks on our airbnb listing - on local walks; places to visit and places to eat.
To access these, just below the map click on ‘Show more…’ then click on ‘Show host guidebook’ (or do message me and I can send you a link to them).

The main heating in the cottage is the wood-burning stove in the living/dining area. There are also oil ‘radiators’ both in the living and bedroom areas and the bathroom has a good sized heated towel rail.

The cottage is on spring water so the taps have lower pressure than mains taps. The cold water in the kitchen can sometimes be the most affected.
The shower has a pressure pump so it isn't as affected by the low pressure!

The private garden is to the side of the cottage with fantastic views over Ponden reservoir and the Pennines. There is a partially covered gazebo area in the garden and there are cushions for garden seats, the bench, and the reclining wooden chairs.

The cottage comes with access to 13-acres of broadleaf, deciduous woodland* including Beech, Ash, Birch, Oak, Alder, Rowan and Sycamore - with the odd veteran tree in excess of 300 years. We are currently engaged in a programme of increasing the woodland's biodiversity and allowing the natural rewilding process to occur. It is listed as a conservation area and has its own stream and is ideal for picnics.
Ponden Wood is also a venue where you can book sessions in archery, axe-throwing, foraging, woodland well-being, fishing (fishing is not on the land) and more. Search online for "withinthewood Stanbury"
* Access to the woodland is allowed when sessions aren't taking place. Session times will be left at the cottage so you know when you can / can't go onto the land. (If you would like to know specific times in advance, do message me).
When sessions are taking place you can still sit out at the top area of the land (by the wood) where there is a picnic area with picnic bench for guests to use - through the gate, just up to the right.

Midden cottage is ideally suited for two. However, it can accommodate 3 (or 4 on request for family/friends who're happy to share it as a 'snug space').
If more than two people are staying there is also a narrow single sofa bed or a single mattress that can be made up, upstairs, for those happy to share the bedroom space.
(There is a narrow single sofa bed in the living space downstairs but this isn’t ideal as you’d be unmaking and re-making the bed - it is also a through room to the bathroom, though a screen can be placed to give a bit of a divide).
Please let us know in advance so the appropriate beds, duvets and linen can be prepared.

The bookcase has a selection of carefully chosen books - some relate to the local area; nature; art; the Bronte's; topical novels and books with various other areas of interest.
There's also a bird-spotting book along with a pair of binoculars on the bookcase - and a bird feeder in the garden to attract the birds.

Cards and a few games are provided - ideal for a cosy evening in by the fire.

We have recently added (an optional) TV which currently has Netflix and is connected to the internet. We have Fibre Optic Broadband so, if you have subscriptions to other networks yourself, you could access them at the cottage.
I'm aware some people come to get away from things though so, if you'd prefer not to have a TV at the cottage please let me know.

A wireless speaker is provided for guests to use, which is compatible with bluetooth smartphones, Mp3 players and laptops.
There are also adaptors both downstairs and upstairs with two USB charging points in each.

Please let me know if you’re wanting to use the 'small work desk' (the cottage's dedicated work area) during your stay, as I only get this out on request.

I'm a dimensional glass artist with a therapeutic background, which have strong influences on my current creative projects and my attention to detail.

My family and myself have lived / worked at Ponden since 1975 and guests have enjoyed hospitality at both Ponden Hall, then Ponden House for over 40 years - though we now no longer run a guest house.

My recent passion has been in the renovating of a small cottage on Ponden estate - it’s been so nice to have a new project to develop there. I love continuing our family’s hospitality (especially my mums) and welcoming previous and new guests to our cosy, quirky, bijou cottage - where they can ‘again’ enjoy staying, visiting Ponden wood, the surrounding countryside, or the local attractions.
