The name hints at its history – this nineteenth-century cottage incorporates a dairy that’s around a hundred years older! Within those ‘old world’ walls, however, you’ll find a holiday home which combines original features with contemporary must-haves while, outside, there’s a fabulous south-facing garden.
Bedrooms and bathrooms
Three bedrooms – a double, a twin and a single – occupy the first floor, along with a cool blue-and-white family bathroom. On the ground floor a chic shower room adds extra convenience and has underfloor heating for all-year-comfort.
Cooking and dining
Original brick flooring and a farmhouse dining suite complement the cheerful coastal colour scheme that’s been chosen for the kitchen units, while Corian work surfaces and a multitude of ‘mod cons’ make light work of the essentials of daily living. There’s a Neff oven, gas hob, fridge and dishwasher here, and in the utility room you’ll find a freezer, microwave and washing machine. Enjoy meals with a garden view at the large table in the open plan sitting and dining room.
Accessed through French doors from the open plan sitting and dining room, a south-facing garden is laid mostly to lawn and comes complete with outdoor furniture and that all-essential summer accessory: a barbecue.
There’s roadside parking nearby, and for those who prefer to travel or sightsee on two wheels, a back garden gate provides convenient access to a large shed that’s perfect for bicycle storage. Both the sitting room and ‘snug’ have TVs and DVD players; in the former you’ll have access to Smart TV technology, while in the latter there’s a BT Sports package provided. WiFi and towels are complimentary, and we can supply a travel cot and highchair for those travelling with young children (who will need to be aware of the various steps throughout both ground and first floors). A security deposit of £150 will be due four weeks prior to your holiday.
