Filled with original features including beamed ceilings, traditional flooring, lintels over windows, original stone staircases and flagstone courtyard, this 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom property, sleeping 8 plus 1, has been recently renovated using traditional, and where possible the original materials to create just the right ambience, for a different holiday!
Situated in perfect peace next to a trout stream this private cottage is ideal for those seeking a truly different holiday. Whilst there is a private pool, there is also the river which is a great adventure for children to play in if they bring their wellies/jellies.
The grounds are perfect for secluded picnics, with just the sounds of the river . T is extremely difficult to gain permission for a pool beside such an historic building, and in a riverside location so this property is quite unique..
This is a perfect choice for a totally ‘alternative’ holiday, staying away from it all in authentic, but comfortable accommodation, beside the river, and with great opportunity for walking. This would be a wonderful family holiday, and we imagine it would be impossible to tear children away from all this outdoor experience!
