Sivel is a gorgeous single-storey cottage, in an amazing place – 20 acres of wooded valley and lovingly tended gardens with wonderful views across the valley to rolling countryside beyond. A haven for wildlife, the birds here are incredible – nuthatches, finches, yellowhammers, woodpeckers, buzzards to name a few. You may also spot the odd deer or fox creeping out of the woods at dusk. The sunny patio invites you to sit and just soak up the tranquil scenery, relax in the hot tub and in the evenings listen to the owls calling to one another across the valley. Named after part of the Owners' woods, Sivel Cottage is quite separate from their home and [Christmas Cottage (2860)](https://www.classic.co.uk/holiday-cottage/desc-2860.html "Christmas Cottage") elsewhere in the grounds. All in all the perfect romantic retreat.
