Cottage History

The cottage was built in the late 18th century.

Mr and Mrs Dickman's Diamond Wedding Anniversary

There is some suggestion that it was originally 2 cottages though this is hard to imagine. Certainly the living room was originally 2 rooms.

It is believed that there is a reference to it in D.H Lawrence's "Sons and Lovers" as a cottage where teas were served.

The cottage takes its name from the Dickman family who lived here in the previous 2 centuries.

In 1960 it was bought by a widow Mrs Gwendoline Bond who lived there until 1991. She built the kitchen on to the back and added the bathroom.

Her photograph is on the wall by the small window. She is also a bridesmaid in the wedding picture below.

The current owners started its refurbishment in 1991. However, some of the furniture here now belonged to Mrs Bond.

The cottage was first opened to guests in 1995.

In 2012 it closed for major refurbishment work, including a new roof and the installation of gas central heating. It has been rewired. The bathroom and kitchen have been fully refitted. The cottage has been redecorated throughout and has the benefit of new carpets and curtains.
