Farm Cottage is a charming mews cottage which has been the subject of a comprehensive programme of improvement over the past decade and is found in very good order with great care and attention given to the fittings and overall finish. The accommodation is light with large sash windows to many of the rooms and worthy of particular mention is the superb John Lewis kitchen/breakfast room which has a cupboard housing the washing machine and dryer, and the delightful sitting room which has a Contura woodburning stove and access to the private garden. To the first floor there are three large double bedrooms, two of which have delightful views over the fountain courtyard, and an attractive modern shower room with underfloor heating.
Farm Cottage also benefits from several other notable features such as a pressurised water system, ADAX panel heaters and secondary double glazing to many of the rooms, and a Nuaire ventilation system.
Farm Cottage benefits from a delightful paved garden to the north which overlooks the attractive courtyard. As mentioned, there are stunning communal grounds of about 10 acres, as well as facilities including a tennis court, swimming pool, sauna and gymnasium. There is also private parking for Farm Cottage and ample visitor parking.
