Location and Things to Do

This cottage is situated in the middle of the National Park and bordered by forest on all sides. If you’ve not visited before, you’ll be pleasantly suprised by the sheer number of large and wild mammals. Here however, they tend to be calm and unphased by humans and from the garden gate you can easily see ponies, cattle and plenty of deer. There are foals and calves in summer. The deer are year-round forest dwellers. The larger Roe deer are easy to spot, the more graceful and spotted Fallow deer often pass by, freqently in summer with their large-eyed and long-legged babies in tow. Then in summer and autumn its not unusual to see the pigs who are turned out by local farmers for the pannage (wild harvest of acorns) of which there are masses all around Sunnydell.

Burley is famed for its witches, smuggling and dragons. During the late 1950’s a famous ‘White’ witch named Sybil Leek lived here. She used to walk around the village in a long, black cloak with her pet jackdaw on her shoulder. Unfortunately, because her attire fitted the image of a wicked ‘black’ witch, the locals were upset by her presence and she decided to live in America where she continued writing many books on the occult and astrology, including “Diary of a Witch”. One of the gift shops was named by her and has her picture hanging by the old Jacobean fireplace inside.
