Cottage Details

Located in the village of Mattishall, Heath Cottage is a truly family friendly holiday home. Offering expansive living accommodation and a fully enclosed garden with inflatable hot-tub and table tennis table, it’s a place for relaxing and entertaining all rolled into one. 

Up to three well behaved dogs are welcome for a small additional charge.


The inside of this beautiful property is a treat! You’ll struggle to choose a favourite place to relax amongst all of the lovely spaces available. 

As you enter into the expansive hallway, you will find a downstairs bathroom with separate walk in shower and bath. Also off the hallway is the door to the huge kitchen and living space, and just inside there a utility room with washing machine and tumble drier.

The main living space is a sight to behold with a very generous modern fitted kitchen and separate island. The kitchen offers a large range-style cooker, dishwasher and wine fridge. The island is the perfect place for breakfast, meaning you can reserve the gorgeous dining area (seating for eight) for your evening meal. This space is topped off by a glorious family seating area, bordered on two sides by huge glass paneled doors out into the garden. 

The downstairs continues through into a formal lounge area which boasts a wood burning stove, as well as a separate snug. 

The levels between the areas on the ground floor may vary slightly, with some small steps between.  With tastefully renovated wooden floors and plush carpets, Heath Cottage also retains many of its original features, including beamed ceilings. 

There’s a total of four televisions with Freeview throughout the property, along with a DVD and Blu-ray player and a digital radio. Domestic WiFi is also available. 

A highchair, cot and stairgate are available upon request.

On the first floor are four good sized bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms are arranged with king size beds that can be configured as twins upon request. A third is configured with a super-king size which can also be divided into twin beds if required. The fourth bedroom has a double bed. On this floor there is also a family bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle.


The rear garden is private and secure and offers even more entertaining space. Sitting in the midst of countryside, it’s a peaceful and relaxing place. With expansive lawns, there’s plenty of room for children and dogs to run around. The inflatable hot-tub and table tennis table mean there’s plenty to do if you decide to have a relaxing day in.  

There’s comfortable garden furniture located on the patio and a gas barbeque.
