About Jennies Cottages

Old Parr's is a privately owned property and has been in the same family since 1950. Jennie became the owner in 1972 and has been responsible for restoring the thatched cottage of Thomas Parr (1483-1635). Jennie's love of the countryside, the wildlife and of animals in general is what has made Old Parr's into the quiet, idyllic haven that it is today.

Jennie finds it extremely difficult to throw anything away and has an eclectic mix of things with a bit of age: tools, utensils, toys, books and even clothes. A visit can often be a delightful surprise as you are transported back to your childhood, whatever your age.

Although Jennie has an odd collection of memorabilia the cottage offers all modern conveniences. (Go to Facilities for more information)
