About Bridget Featherstone

Churchside Guest Apartment is the self contained annex to Churchside House. My family and I have lived at Churchside for the last four years but it has only been in the spring of this year when we decided to rent out the apartment for holidays. We hope that it will provide a good base for happy holidays in the area, it certainly is a fabulous area to live in and we think it is would also be a great area to holiday in.

Bridget Featherstone purchased this apartment in 2009

Guestbook comments from the owner

John and Julie June 2013 (2 nights): We enjoyed our stay here, has everything you need. Clean and modern. The garden area was really sweet and pretty. Very confortable stay and would recommend to friends and family. Bridget was lovely and welcoming.

Jan and Paul July 2013 (7 nights): We needed somewhere quiet and this was ideal. I did some lovely walks with the dog as advised by Jeremy, We will certainly be back as we were made to feel very welcome. Thank you both.

Wonderful contained and homely annexe, perfect for couples

  • 5 of 5

Bridget was a very welcoming and accommodating owner. There were beautiful and personal touches, Bridget generously provided biscuits, lovely fresh fruit, milk and even treats for our dog. This was gratefully appreciated. The annexe is perfect, spotlessly clean, light, private, quiet and spacious. My husband and I have stayed in various different cottages and we can say quite earnestly that it was a joy and pleasure to stay here. The annexe has every mod con you could need and think of. Bridget has put a lot of thought into this annexe to ensure the comfort of her guests. We personally thanked Bridget for all her efforts, they are deeply appreciated. The courtyard garden was great, we enjoyed hearing the birds and resident woodpecker.

We will be booking again for a longer stay. It is central to most places and has a lot of fabulous nature walks.
