Approached from the courtyard, the Gardener’s Cottage is the smaller building. Once a farm store, then the living quarters of the Hall’s gardener, the cottage has been renovated to provide a cosy nest for up to four, combining the best of the traditional and the new.
Inside you will find underfloor heating (upstairs and down), high speed wifi and easily operated blinds for the large front windows when you need some privacy.
Across the courtyard is the boot room – a drying room with a large sink, washing machine and tumble dryer – particularly useful if you have had a muddy day of walking or cycling. – particularly useful if you have had a muddy day of walking or cycling.
Downstairs the living room contains a dining area and space for relaxing. Set for two in the picture, the table extends easily for four.
A unique traditional feature is the old wooden shutter and iron keep giving views to the field.
The kitchen, although compact, has all that you need, including a dishwasher and microwave.
Also downstairs is the well appointed bathroom with a generous shower.
The most striking features upstairs are the old wooden roof beams above the beds.
In the double bedroom, you can see one side of the bed is under the eaves. There is an etched glass screen to bring borrowed natural light into a room where conservation would not allow an outside window (although the room does have ventilation).
Behind the cottage, fields rise steeply with sheep grazing up to top of Cow Low (locally pronounced Caller). To the left of the cottage is a path to take you into the field. (Coming soon – a seating area behind the cottage with stunning views up the hillside.)
