The Cottage

Character Self catering holiday cottage, Ollerton Village

Savile House, named after the Savile family who owned the Rufford Estate, dates back to the 1800’s and has spent it’s history as a variety of shops including a newsagent, a confectionery shop and a post office to name a few. The house was converted into a residential home 6 years ago by the previous owner. Being new owners, we have made some subtle improvements to the property and this will be ongoing. We have been working on the rear garden, having moved the pebbles and installed a patio area and beds for planting. Savile House is well proportioned with a lovely beamed sitting room and a big  kitchen with a large oak dining table, a great social space. There are 3 bedrooms, a master with king sized bed,  and 2 single bedded rooms. WiFi is provided along with bed linen, towels and a welcome pack. Outside enclosed patio garden. We welcome well behaved dogs (not puppies under 6 months) and children over 8 years of age.

We, along with our family, stay in the Savile House regularly, so it really is a comfortable ‘home from home.’
