At the heart of the cottage is the large, open-plan drawing-room/dining-room/kitchen. The focal point is the antique pine mantelpiece and open fireplace with a club fender, plus there’s comfy sofa and armchair seating where you can get cosy. A needlepoint rug, a Victorian bookcase and a brass candelabra all add individual flair and homeliness to the space.
Next to the sitting area is a dining table positioned beside French doors that lead to the cottage’s secluded terrace.
Behind the dining table is the kitchen space which has half granite, half pine worktops, a Belfast sink and a kitchen island. There’s everything you could want to make all your meals, including a hob and oven, a microwave and a fridge/freezer, plus there’s a washing machine and tumble dryer.
The master bedroom is on the ground floor and features a king-size, four-poster bed and antique furniture including a 19th-century mahogany chest of drawers and a rosewood desk. Plus, there’s an en-suite with a bath and a shower over, a WC and an old marble-topped French washstand.
A staircase leads up to the second bedroom that has two single four-poster beds and an en-suite wet room with a walk-in shower, WC and washstand.
Outside, the terrace is edged on both sides by trellis covered with climbing plants which offer plenty of privacy. It borders the lawns and walled gardens of the estate. Furnished with a table, chairs, umbrella and a barbecue, it’s a delightful spot for al fresco dining.
You’ll also have access to the estate’s stunning gardens which feature a mix of formal and informal elements, the perfect place for a quiet stroll. There’s also access to shared facilities including an indoor swimming pool, spa and gym, as well as several children’s play areas and the teens’ games room.
