General Description

A warm welcome to Birkett House, a wonderful seventeenth century property full of character and charm. Now providing luxury holiday accommodation for 6 lucky people, Birkett House is not one to be missed.

Head inside and into the main living room. With original beams, built in cupboards and wooden floorboards, this spacious room feels wonderfully cosy and welcoming. Relax in front of the open fire or perch on the window seat, the perfect place to catch up with a good book - if you don't get distracted by the view over the delightful garden that is! For entertainment there's a TV, handily tucked away in one of the built in cupboards. A cosy second sitting room means there's plenty of space for everyone to relax. There's another TV in here, or simply enjoy a quiet moment away from the stresses of everyday life.

At the back of the house is the well equipped kitchen with an electric oven, modern induction hob, microwave, two larder fridges, a freezer and dishwasher. It's sure to be a hit with the cooks in the group!

The kitchen opens out into the dining room, once home to the farm's laundry. There's plenty of clues to the house's history in here, from the vaulted ceiling to the wooden beams and lintels. Now the perfect place for feasting, gather round the wooden dining table and compare notes on the day's adventures over a hearty home-cooked meal. A washer/dryer can also be found in the kitchen. There is a large  covered porch area and entrance hall, ideal for storing muddy boots and wet coats. A high chair is kept in the dining room - the seat is in the sideboard and the legs are in the cupboard to the left of the sideboard.

Continue up to the first floor where you'll find the luxurious sleeping quarters. First up is the beautiful master bedroom. You'll feel instantly at home in here thanks to the fabulous king-size bed and pretty feature fireplace. For storage there's a wooden chest of drawers and wardrobe. This bedroom has its own fabulous en suite bathroom: along with the WC and washbasin is a gorgeous free-standing cast iron bath, perfect for indulging in a long, luxurious soak. The other two bedrooms are just as lovely. The middle bedroom has a king-size bed, bedside drawers and a wardrobe (a travel cot and separate mattress are kept in this wardrobe). The third, a twin bedroom, also benefits from an en suite WC and washbasin tucked away in what was once the linen cupboard. Should you need it, this bedroom can also be made up as a super-king upon request. The beautiful family bathroom can also be found on the first floor. In here there's a WC, washbasin and bath with shower over.

Outside there is private parking for two cars at the rear of the house. At the front a delightful enclosed cottage garden matches perfectly with the house: a special place to enjoy your beautiful surroundings. With outdoor furniture, you can choose to dine al fresco or sit and watch the comings and goings of the birds and wildlife who also love to visit Birkett House.
