About Us

Bob and Kate

We are Bob and Kate, we moved to Millbrook in March 2005 from North Somerset. We live and work at Millbrook and see it through the seasons. Kate's' favourite time of year is late April when spring is sprung and when everyday the plants look different. Bobs' favourite time of year is winter - with the crisp frosts and the colour's of the willows.

We exchanged and completed on Rose Cottage in October 2011 and spent the winter painting, sanding, wall papering and buying ready to open Rose in March 2012. Rose Cottage is now welcoming guests for romantic breaks all year around.

Meet our Team

Nic is our housekeeper at Rose Cottage, Dave is our Groundskeeper at Millbrook and Rose Cottage and Sarah is our Head Housekeeper down at Millbrook. We have an gardner called Jenny who helps us to plant up areas and make them look stunning! In our office and at the other end of the phone we also have Linda, Collette and Jemma working in the Office.

Rose Cottage is open 365 days a year and apart from Christmas and New Year change overs are fixed to a Monday and Friday (as this is the days that Nic works). We specialise in romantic breaks, honeymoons and anniversaries for couples of all ages!
