The little cottage under the hangar adjacent to the farmhouse was built of local stone between the wars has been renovated and refurbished transforming it into a cosy and charming, comfortable holiday home from home. The cottage would be ideal for a romantic break for couple of nature-lovers or equally a quiet hideaway for writers and painters seeking inspiration!
The airy and light-filled stone cottage is cool in Summer and cosy in Winter. Consisting of three rooms – kitchen/day room; bedroom and large en-suite shower-room and toilet all on the ground floor, the cottage would also be suitable for people with restricted mobility. Internet is available through a wifi connection.
The large kitchen/day room has all the equipment you would require for a self-catering holiday and heating is by a cast-iron wood-burning stove – a joy to come home to after a ramble through the surrounding country lanes! Kindling and firewood are supplied free of charge. There is a dining table and chairs and a large L-shaped corner settee provides ample comfortable seating.
The large bedroom with matching solid oak double bed and wardrobe boasts wonderful uninterrupted panoramic views over the ever-changing countryside. We have recently added a beautiful, sturdy day-bed with trundle bed underneath to this room that will accommodate two children or adults. All bed-linen including towels is supplied.
We provide a welcome hamper consisting of wine or apple juice, eggs and cheese, our own or from local providers and other organic home produce – lamb; sausages; chutneys and jams; salads and veg etc are available for purchase when available and in season. We can also provide an evening meal along with the family (“table d’hôte”) by reservation giving at least a days notice. We can provide packed lunches made from our own and local organic produce on giving us a days notice also.
You are welcome to pick herbs for the kitchen or flowers that take your fancy.
You are free to wander around the rest of our smallholding, meet the animals and sit by the wildlife pond.
There is parking next to the cottage.
We are a working smallholding; there are free range chickens and at times other animals wandering around, and some small farm machinery may be in use according to the season and other paraphernalia and tools around. We cannot automatically accept young children, as we cannot guarantee that the area is child-safe should young children escape from parental supervision. Babies and small children who are continually under adult supervision are welcome as are older children who are aware of the potential dangers; so please get in touch to discuss this before booking. Travel cots and fold-away single beds can be added to the bedroom on request.
