There two converted horse boxes, which sit side-by-side, tucked away in the extensive private gardens. The exteriors have been painted pale green and they ooze vintage charm, outside and in.
Hop up a couple of wooden steps, past potted plants, onto the spacious deck, a handy space for chilling out in the sunshine. Guests step directly into the compact but well-equipped kitchen. Natural materials, wooden counters and dark wood floors, add warmth to this light and stylish area. Open shelves hold wine glasses and tea cups, there is even a colour co-ordinated vintage-style kettle and toaster. A wood-topped breakfast bar acts as the dining area and the abundance of windows, and a set of patio doors, offer great views at all times. Bench seats with comfy cushions invite guests to settle in with the book or make plans for the day.
At bed time, there are two options, a luxurious double which looks out onto a pretty terrace, or the cute cabin-style bed which kids will love. The bathroom is situated in the adjoining horse box. Polished, corrugated iron clads the walls of this practical, stylish and innovative room. The iron has been used inventively to create a striking contrast with the exposed timber framing and tongue and groove panelling. It provides an impressive backdrop to the wet room style rainfall shower. The stylish features are enhanced by the Belfast-style sink which stands on a vintage cabinet and has copper taps.
