Brand spanking newly renovated barn to a genuinely high spec - Grade II listed 'Dovecote' located on a working arable farm in a lovely remote setting in the Essex countryside.
Situated next to a small duck pond, overlooking the farmyard/old stables/etc as well as the local church, The Dovecote is a two-storey brick and oak framed building finished to an incredibly high standard. Peaceful & remote with its own courtyard, the Dovecote has an elevated location in the otherwise undeveloped yard.
The Dovecote has a 'one-up, one-down' layout which has been uniquely transformed into the perfect space for a rural getaway.
Enter via the original barn doorway through oak framed glass doors onto the ground floor laid with reclaimed brick flooring and consisting of a living room area with cosy log burner, a dining area and a well equipped bespoke kitchenette made from potato boxes!
Oak stairs lead up to the first floor revealing the full effect of the beautifully exposed original oak beamed roof, under which is a luxury kingsize bed. An oak chest and a clothes stand/rail provide plenty of storage and there is a discreet TV upstairs too.
An original sliding barn door leads through to the en-suite shower/bathroom with a fantastic partial-glass wall and bespoke sink cabinet made from old farm tools and a slice of elm tree!
Underfloor heating throughout
Plus Log Burner during Winter
Shingle Courtyard with seating
( outside space is still a 'work in progress' so will be constantly evolving over the summer, please do ask any questions and/or we'll happily share an update/photos of current progress of the outside)
WIFI now installed!!
Located in Langley, Essex, the Dovecote is in walking distance (less than half a mile) from the local pub The Bull, and is only 3 miles from Clavering where there is a local shop along with Clavering Lakes (bistro restaurant & fishing lakes), The Fox & Hounds, and the well-known Cricketers gastro pub.
Langley and the surrounding villages have several public footpaths easily accessible from here.
Newport railway station is under a 10min drive away, and Audley End station approx 10mins, both of which offer trains direct to Cambridge and to central London.
Stansted Airport is a 20min drive away, or 10min direct train journey from Audley End railway station.
Saffron Walden is the nearest town, roughly 15min drive away, and Cambridge is approx 35mins drive.
Audley End House & Estate (English Heritage) is approx 10mins drive and there are plenty of National Trust destinations dotted around the local South East area.
NB: Due to the remote location a car will be needed to access The Dovecote.
Also worth bearing in mind that due to this being a working farm there may be periods during the year that we have more activity going on than normal, most notably during harvest! Accommodation is still of course completely accessible, etc.
