This 16th century stone farmhouse is quire remote and very secluded, nestling in a glorious garden location with views towards the Black Mountains. Comfortable open-plan beamed interiors and a large garden make the cottage a perfect retreat for a couple or a small family.
The house has been superbly decorated with natural limewash on the stone walls, Farrow & Ball colours, and flagstone floors with very efficient under-floor heating. The magnificent great oak beams are set off by antique rugs, lovely crisp linen sheets, goose down duvets and beautiful fabrics; antique furniture combined with many contemporary features makes this a unique and very special house to stay in.
In this imaginatively converted cottage, nestling in the heart of the villa, the beams have been exposed to allow an uninterrupted flow of light around the house and with these open plan beamed interiors and a lovely outdoor seating area, this is the perfect retreat for a couple or a small family.
There are roses and climbing plants around the door, large stone terraces at the front with garden furniture and a barbecue. Behind the house there is another stone terrace with sheltered but sunny corners.
The house is set amidst gardens with lawns and fruit trees, with ponies grazing in the adjacent fields. It is surrounded by miles of open countryside and a stream runs through the garden, leading to a secret waterfall with its own natural plunge pool – quite idyllic.
