Be a princess

Sinking into one of these ornate beds made from oak or iron with Gothic arches or hand engraved craftsmanship after a day spent either relaxing in your self-catering cottage or spent out exploring your surroundings, is a great way to end each day in style. The regal feel of these beds will send you off into a deep and comfortable slumber and it may be hard to return back to a regular bed after a while!

The most romantic of cottages are decked out in beautiful and unique furnishings, from large open log fires to bubbling hot tubs with power air jets. The epitome of romantic embellishment is, however, four poster beds. With their four vertical bed posts that support a roofed panel overheard, they are extremely romantic.

Curtains are often attached to the posts which can be wrapped around, shutting off everything from sight, making them all the more amorous. These beds are also reminiscent of a fairytale princess’ sleeping quarters and you will surely feel like a princess (or a prince!) when you sink into the soft mattress of a four poster.
