... with its accommodation over two floors and with two separate ensuite bedrooms, is a favourite with families and friends. This cottage boasts stunning views across the valley and into the courtyard.
A spacious entrance veranda which also houses the magical Narnia wardrobe leads into the living room area with a beautiful solid elm floor, quality sofa and armchairs and open fire place. To the right through a beautiful elm door is a small cloakroom with airing room, washing machine and downstairs toilet.
The dining area with wonderful views across the fields and valley, has a large refectory table in solid elm which can seat up to 8 people. Adjacent to the dining area is the oak framed kitchen which has a granite work top and stainless steel fittings with all modern equipment.
A beautiful solid ash open tread staircase with oak panelling to the side leads to the 2 ensuite bedrooms. The front room overlooking the courtyard has an exquisite shower room with exposed stone wall, Venetian marble tiling and oak panelling with an electronic power shower.
The rear bedroom looks out across the pond and valley beyond and the ensuite bathroom accessed through frosted glass panelled doors features Venetian marble tiling and a deep oak panelled bath.
Both bedrooms have solid oak floors, ample storage and handmade hardwood beds which can be arranged either as 2 single beds or zip linked together to make super king-size doubles. Top quality firm mattresses and beautiful Egyptian cotton linen make for very comfortable nights.
