Stay - The Accommodation...
Approached from the gravel parking area, a gated path leads through the enclosed garden to the stable front door which opens to a delightful open plan living room converted from a 19th century milking parlour. Furnished to a high standard, the ceiling rises to the apex of the roof with exposed cross beams. There is a smartly fitted kitchen area, a small dining suite and comfortable lounge seating before a wood burning stove. There are lovely views of the moor and surrounding countryside from all the windows.
An inner hallway and one step leads down to a bathroom W.C. with hand basin and shower over the bath, and at the end of the hall, one step continues down to an attractive master bedroom with the choice of a 6ft super king or 3ft twin beds and reclaimed pine furniture. Two skylight windows with solar powered, remote controlled blinds allow visitors to watch the stars at night.
At the front of the property there is a sheltered patio area and 4 steps leading down to a walled and gated lawned garden with a granite topped table and tranquil views of the surrounding countryside. Pets are welcome but dogs will need to be kept under control as the neighbouring fields may sometimes contain livestock including rescue ponies.
