Beautifully appointed, the Coach House is perfectly positioned for both coast and country and offers a perfect retreat to indulge family, friends or corporate guests to a stay in luxury surroundings. Formerly the old coach house for the Lesbury Estate, a great deal of thought has gone into the development of this property and the result is a perfect fusion of comfort and elegance with meticulous attention to detail.
The ground floor has immediate impact opening up into a generous open plan living space which flows seamlessly from the high spec catering kitchen with granite surfaces, walnut bar and wine fridge to a superb dining space which seats eight comfortably.
With high vaulted ceilings, the property has grand proportions yet retains warmth and intimacy with a double-sided wood burner connecting the dining area to the sitting area, all beautifully balanced with original stonework, rich oak floors and beams, vintage leather and Harris Tweed to introduce warmth and texture to this incredibly atmospheric space.
The four en-suite bedrooms are serene and streamlined featuring a neutral colour palette and high quality finishes which perfectly complements the rest of the property. Super king beds, luxurious duck down duvets, high quality White Company bed linen and underfloor heating in the bathrooms all add to the feeling of quality and well-being.
For country sports enthusiasts, facilities include a boot room (with underfloor heating) and gun cabinet, with kennels and stables available to guests at additional cost.
