About the Cottage:
With its own private south-facing garden, large patio area and parking for up to 3 cars the old farmhouse is perfect for a large family get-together or for two families to holiday together. We also allow one well-behaved dog in the farmhouse, but it must be restricted to the kitchen and garden and a security deposit will be required.
The heart of the farmhouse is the massive family kitchen, with a large dining table, island workbench/breakfast bar and with doors out to the rear garden. The kitchen has a small sofa and benches for relaxing. It also has a vaulted beamed ceiling and is always flooded with light from the ten glass doors and windows. The kitchen was originally used for parking the farm tractors and you can still see the exposed stone of the old farmhouse wall and even the back of the clay bread oven that was once used to bake bread for the family. The kitchen now has all the modern conveniences to make your stay as comfortable as possible, including a double range oven, microwave, fridge, double sink, and a 50-inch tv. Off the kitchen is a small utility room with a large American-style fridge freezer. For those staying in winter, the kitchen also has a log-burning stove (though it is not needed as the central heating is more than adequate).
From the kitchen, there are double doors through into the wide corridor and from there doors lead into the two lounges and the downstairs bedroom.
The main lounge is beautifully furnished and has a 55inch smart TV, with a DVD player.
From the main lounge, double doors take you through to the small lounge, which offers a peaceful seating area. The small lounge was once the kitchen for the farmhouse and still has the original stone hearth and bread ovens built into the 4ft thick wall. The room now has a log burner fitted, which is perfect for sitting in front of during winter nights.
Upstairs the Farmhouse has four bedrooms. The main bedroom has a king-size bed and an en-suite shower room. The second bedroom also has a king-size bed, The third bedroom has a double bed and the fourth bedroom has a three-quarter bed (with room for one adult or two children). There is room for a cot in the first or second bedrooms. Upstairs there is also a shared bathroom with a large shower and a separate bath.
The fifth bedroom is downstairs, off the main hall, and has two single beds. There is also a downstairs toilet making the downstairs bedroom suitable for guests with limited mobility (please note that it is not an en-suite toilet – but is available on the ground floor via the reception area at the front of the farmhouse). Two additional children can sleep on the sofa bed which is o the 2nd (small) lounge.
Please note that The Farmhouse has not been officially accredited with a star rating. This is partly due to the fact that it only has two bathrooms and because there are no bedside tables in the third bedroom. Please be assured that the property has been furnished to a high quality and we are confident that you will not be disappointed.
