The Farmhouse
Originally three buildings, The Farmhouse dates back to the eighteenth century. A beautiful traditional pink gritstone construction with six bedrooms, it's reached by its own drive and there's parking for six cars immediately outside the door. For most of the year The Farmhouse serves as our family home, but in the summer school holidays we stay with my parents in Italy so we'd love to have you to stay here!

Recently renovated, the style is clean, modern and cosy rather than rustic. The dining room and kitchen are in a single open-plan space; the dining room and living room face south and have lovely views over the farm. There's a log burner, Sky TV, BluRay DVD, and a music system.

The ground-floor bedroom overlooks the garden. Also on the ground floor are a bathroom: bath with shower-over, lavatory, basin, towel radiator, and washing and drying machines; and a separate lavatory.

Up the main stairs are four bedrooms, and a bathroom with a walk-in shower, lavatory, basin, and towel radiator. The sixth bedroom has its own stairs from the ground floor, and has a lovely view over the pond.

All bedrooms have super-king double beds (which can be made up as twins if you prefer) with natural fibre duvets, cotton sheets and covers. All bed linen and towels are provided.

The kitchen has a beautiful AGA which I adore cooking on! But if you'd rather stick to the conventional equipment it's all there: ceramic hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and of course all the usual range of kitchen equipment: food processor, kettle, etc..

Oil-fired central heating keeps The Farmhouse deliciously warm 24 hours a day, there's a phone which you're welcome to use, and free wireless broadband internet throughout.

The Farmhouse has a gated and lit lawned garden which is secure for small children. There's a barbeque area with seating for twelve. Well behaved pets are welcome and there's plenty of room for off-the-lead walking on the farm. There's bags of room to smoke on the farm but please don't smoke inside. The farm is your playground: treat it as if you owned the place!
