I love this quaint little cottage that is nestled in the countryside. I pass it on my way to the garden centre and have never been passed when it's open.

Nothing much to say. The cottage sits alone in the countryside and opens only at certain times.There is a small free car park attached. The cottage is simple but "tells its story" The gardens are split in two: a rose and herb garden plus a lawned area.

The cottage is small. If you are interested in seeing Izaak Waitons Cottage this can be viewed in 30- 40 mins. You can then go to other nearby attractions. This is not a full day out but is interesting.

This attraction is easy to find, really well sign posted, However there are selected opening hours so make sure it is actually open before going. The cottage and its surroundings bring to life the ambiance of the "compleat angler"
