Hay Bale Cottage is one of four luxury holiday homes set within the owners’ peaceful and picturesque farm. This stunning cottage has everything you need for a relaxing staycation in the countryside, including an open-plan living space and a private wood-fired hot tub. Not forgetting your four-legged friends, the owners have considered everything your pooch will need during your stay, including towels, bowls and a handy dog wash, complete with shampoo and treats to get their tails wagging.
This two-storey cottage has been carefully designed with contemporary décor, underfloor heating and original features throughout.
The property begins with an open-plan kitchen/diner, featuring restored wooden beams, exposed brick walls and delightful artwork. Complete with a rustic four-seater dining table and a stylish kitchen with a breakfast bar, this space is perfect for socialising and preparing delicious feasts after a day of exploring. The kitchen comprises a fridge/freezer, a microwave, a kettle, an electric hob, an oven, a coffee machine and a dishwasher.
Rearing off the kitchen, you will also have access to a utility room and WC, complete with a washing machine and tumble dryer.
There are two bedrooms on the ground floor, one with a king-size bed, an en-suite with a bath and a Smart TV. The other bedroom comprises a super-king bed (which can be split into two twin beds if required), a Smart TV and an en-suite with a shower. Both bedrooms have been designed with calming colour tones and complementary patterns, making for the perfect place to relax and take in the views.
As you venture up the stairs to the first floor, you are greeted by an open-plan living space with original flooring, vaulted ceiling, rustic wooden beams and a gorgeous log burner. Settle down on the comfortable Chesterfield sofa as you immerse yourself in a movie on the Smart TV or open the Juliet balcony doors and admire the idyllic views with a glass of wine in hand.
To the rear of the cottage, there is a beautiful private garden and terrace, fully enclosed for your four-legged friends to explore. There is also a unique wood-fired hot tub, a rattan patio set and a BBQ, perfect for socialising and dining alfresco.
At the front of the property, you will have access to two designated parking spaces and a shared courtyard, which can be used by all guests staying on the farm. There is a comfortable garden furniture set, a play area and an outdoor dog wash, ideal for mucky paws after a stroll through the countryside.
