General Description

Helm Lune has been thoughtfully designed to provide a practical, cosy and comfortable cottage whilst retaining some of the character of the original barn which was converted in 1990.

Entering into the cottage you come straight into the spacious split level living dining room. To the right the dining table for six is positioned in front of French doors out to the lawned gardens to the back for lovely peaceful views. The kitchen is to the left but you will be drawn across the wooden floor, past a feature curved bookshelf and up the three steps on the right into the main living area. This lovely double height space is lit by skylights and dual aspect windows with rural views, there are exposed beams in the vaulted ceiling and this bright room has a lovely feel. Take a seat on one of the 3 armchairs or the 2-seater sofa, enjoy the open fire in a slate hearth and relax in this cosy spot. When you get tired of watching the fire, there is a Freeview TV and DVD player with a few DVDs to get you started.

The kitchen looks out over the garden and is cleverly designed to make it a pleasure to use. All the usual mod cons are included – washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric oven and ceramic hob. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could need in smart modern fitted units.

In the corner of the lower part of the open area is a hallway leading past the handy downstairs toilet to the stairs, lit by a skylight, carpeted and boasting some lovely local photographs on the walls they lead up to a landing. On the right the family bathroom is spacious, modern and practical but still contains character beams, the bath has a shower over and there is a heated towel radiator.

Opposite the bathroom the flexible triple bedroom can be set up as 3 singles or a super-king plus a single. Vaulted ceilings with beams make the room feel spacious and it is lit by a large skylight window. A fitted wardrobe, bedside tables and a chest of drawers complete the furniture.

At the end of the hallway is the master bedroom. With king size bed and stylish en-suite shower room this is a lovely room to retreat to at the end of the day. Built in bedside tables, exposed beams in the vaulted ceiling, skylight and cute feature window at floor level give this room its own unique character. There is a fitted wardrobe and a chest of drawers for storage and the en-suite with heated towel radiator and tiled floor also has exposed beams.

Outside is a shared lawned garden with seating areas and a barbeque area with rural views. The shared walled parking area is close by with access to a small orchard area for short morning or evening strolls for enjoying the peace and quiet and watching the local wildlife.
