In a simple and a peaceful cottage with a beautiful view, you will not be dreaming about the palaces or the heaven, because you already have a perfect thing! ― Mehmet Murat Ildan
Simple. Peaceful. Beautiful.
Pickering Manor cottages are purposefully designed to be simple, peaceful, and beautiful in order to give you a long, healthy life.
How does a Pickering Manor cottage promote a healthy lifestyle?
Lots of light chases away depression and anxiety, lessens eye strain, and boosts morale. Our cottages have beautiful windows which stream the sunshine of daylight. There are plenty of outlets and cozy corners for lamps for good lighting in the evenings.
The cottages at Pickering Manor encourage social interactions. Social interactions are a necessary ingredient for a physically, emotionally, and mentally healthy life. The cottages are designed to facilitate social interactions both inside and outside. Inside, the cottages have ample room with an open floor plan to arrange your living space to facilitate conversation. There’s plenty of room for entertaining. Outside, the cottages are arranged close together to encourage neighborly friendliness. The cottages form a supportive and active community within the larger community of Pickering Manor.
Cottage living is intended to be less stress which means greater health. You don’t need to care for the yard work, do indoor repairs, negotiate bills, or worry about taxes.
A cottage set amongst mature trees, flowering gardens, and vast green spaces does your health good. Studies show that your participation in nature is good for your health. At Pickering Manor, we are intentional about having well cared for landscaping with flowers, trees, and neatly trimmed lawns. The fresh air is good for your body, too. Don’t forget to bring nature inside and include houseplants in your cottage decor.
Walking is good for your health and a great low impact exercise. There are plenty of well-maintained walkways on the Pickering Manor property. If you need to sit a spell, enjoy the porch or the gazebo.
