Availability & Booking
'Gweek Lodge' formerly known as Gingerbread Cottage, at Gweek, is a grade 2 listed thatched character cottage which has recently been sympathetically renovated by the owner. It is one of the most photographed buildings in the area and only a few yards from the head of the creek. Just five minutes walk from the local shop and famous Black Swan public house.
Entered via the original arch doorway into a small lobby area with space for coats and boots and a bookcase with a few books. The handcrafted kitchen has a slate floor and is very well-equipped, having electric oven and 4-ring induction hob with extractor over, microwave, fridge with freezer compartment and a small inglenook fireplace where the original fire would have stood. At one end of the kitchen is a dining table and four chairs.
The cosy lounge is beautifully furnished and consists of a two seat settee and one armchair around an LCD TV with freeview and WiFi is also provided. The ground floor bathroom is of good quality, having wood flooring, bath with electric shower over, matching toilet, handbasin with a shaver socket adjacent and towels provided.
A winding staircase leads from the lounge to the upstairs bedroom and dressing room. With a double bed, bedside tables and lamps and a double wardrobe. The dressing room has further storage in a set of drawers, there is also a table, two chairs and a full length mirror. A feature, deep-set window, between the two rooms has been turned into a seat.
The emphasis throughout the renovation has been on quality. From the textiles to the kitchen appliances, the glassware are Villeroy & Boch and the crockery is by Denby, no expense has been spared.
Outside there is off-road parking for one car and at the rear is a steep, terraced garden with flower beds, lawn, patio and decked area with table and chairs. Gweek Lodge does accept one dog by prior arrangement, whilst the garden is hedged and fenced pet owners must supervise at all times.
Heating throughout is by modern storage radiators. Rental includes bedlinen, towels, electricity, heating and WiFi. Strictly no smoking.
