More about the property

Stylishly furnished, this gorgeous eco retreat with beamed and vaulted ceilings provides spacious accommodation that would suit either families or couples where comfort and tranquillity are high on the agenda. A luxury eco-friendly design, the tasteful contemporary interior is warmed by underfloor heating with the added comfort of a wood burning stove to snuggle up in front of on cooler evenings. The interior is on one level with the exception of two steps leading from the open plan lounge to the master bedroom. Both bedrooms are furnished with blissfully comfortable beds dressed in soft organic bedding both with spacious walk in double shower rooms. The well equipped kitchen is stocked with eco products for your use during your stay and a large oak table in the centre of the room is perfect for leisurely suppers, and will display a wonderful welcome hamper brimming with organic and home grown goodies for your arrival.
