A quintessential country cottage
For those craving a little of the good life, this pretty cottage will hit the right note for fishing, walking, and cycling pursuits along tranquil river valleys or simply cosying-up with a good book in front of the dancing flames of a real fire. When a lazy lunch beckons, the charming village pub is just a mile from the door.
The beauty of this cottage is the peaceful country setting yet is ideal for sightseeing and exploring the wonderful attractions of the area. Warm and inviting, the cottage benefits from an open plan sitting room with wood burner and dining space leading to a bright, sunny kitchen, while a separate sitting room adds a dash of Nordic elegance for relaxed socialising or just a little time-out.
The bathroom on the ground floor has a plentiful supply of hot water whilst upstairs, two double bedrooms (one double, one twin) have delightful combed ceilings and scenic views out towards Ruberslaw Hill. Crisp linens from the White Company, gorgeous furnishing fabrics from Scottish design company Inchyra, along with sumptuous goose down duvets and pillows should help to ease you into a restful sleep.
