THE COTTAGE.Originally the miller's cottage and barn. Vaulted oak beamed ceilings, thick welsh slate window sills and double french doors leading out onto a brick paved terrace overlooking the view down to the valley .
The Cottage is centuries old and most of the really unusual features have been retained, including some arrow slit windows and a unique antique lifting wheel that was still in use until just a few years ago. An original exterior stone staircase to the upper floor has been preserved (now only decorative)
CONSERVATORY Overlooks the garden and lilly pond. Currently used as an extra bedroom.
THE GREAT ROOM
This large room is the living area of the cottage. It has a cathedral ceiling, green oak A-frame beams, rustic oak panelling and double wide glass French windows that lead out to the terrace
Reclaimed Welsh flag-stone flooring with an under floor heating system keeps this room warm during the cooler months and a large Jotul wood burner provides a roaring open fire to curl up beside.
Staircase leads to the bedroom on the upper floor. It has been custom designed using one of the old hay racks salvaged from a byre and kiln dried estate oak.
