Feel at home in the spacious and comfortable beamed sitting room with exposed limestone walls, an original gritstone fireplace and a wood-burning stove. There is a comfortable suite, TV with Freeview channels, which has over 100 channels, DVD player, radio/CD player, a very good selection of walking books, and several books of local interest and information. Complimentary WiFi access.
To the rear of the sitting room is the dining area with a cast iron radiator and feature spiral staircase which leads to the bedroom and separate bathroom, which has a full suite with a shower over the bath.
Gritstone steps lead from the sitting room to the superb beamed kitchen with an exposed limestone wall. Here, you will find everything you need for your stay: plenty of crockery and cutlery, pots and pans, oven and hob, fridge with 4-star freezer compartment, microwave, washing machine, and combination gas boiler, which gives you a great deal full central heating and constant hot water.
You will also find a few basic essentials such as a dishcloth, tea towel, kitchen roll, washing up liquid and condiments. The view from the kitchen window makes washing up a pleasure!
A stable door opens up to a small courtyard area with steps leading up to the gravelled garden and roof terrace which has incredible views over the dale.
There is a patio table and chairs and also a garden bench where you can sit and while away the hours with a glass of wine or cup of tea and when the weather is warm and the sun is shining it is the perfect place to be.
Just a short walk down the footpath will take you to the River Bradford and the Limestone Way, from here you are spoilt for choice as to which way to walk and you are sure to meet some of the ‘locals’ on the way such as herons, dippers, wagtails, bullfinches, great tits, blue tits, coal tits etc and, if you’re very lucky the kingfisher and the water voles. It is only a short walk from here to the Lathkill Dale National Nature Reserve.
