Outside Description

Decked Terrace. Outside, there is a large decked terrace, furnished with a dining table and chairs, parasol, barbeque and planters. You can relax here and enjoy tranquil views over farmland. The birdlife is especially interesting; in spring, watch the curlews and lapwings gathering on the meadow, while in summer, swallows swoop and dive over the grass and buzzards soar lazily over the woodland. This is part of a working farm, so you may also see livestock (cattle or sheep).

Downstairs Description

Open-Plan Living Area. The front door leads into the main living space - a light and airy sitting area with a leather sofa and wide, bi-fold doors affording superb views over pastureland and the Quaker Hollow wetland towards moorland and forest.

Dining Kitchen. The kitchen / diner is fully equipped with granite worktops, induction hob, electric oven, fridge-freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washer-dryer, and a comprehensive range of kitchen utensils.

Bedroom. The bedroom, also with views over the fields, is stylishly furnished with a super-king size bed (that can be made up as two singles on request), an oak wardrobe and side tables. Non-allergenic duvets and pillows and White Company pure cotton bed linen add to the experience.

En-suite shower room. Adjoining the bedroom is a fully-tiled shower room with a large walk-in shower, wash basin and wc, complemented by White Company towels. Complimentary White Company toiletries add to the experience.

Windows Views Description

From both the bedroom and living room windows there are extensive views over pastureland towards forest and the fells of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
