General Description

Iona Cottage is a stunning period property set in the peaceful village of Bampton Grange. The house has been refurbished retaining all of its charm and character while bringing the property right into the 21st century with a modern heating system, new appliances, luxurious bathrooms and an elegant eye for decor. It is the corner point in a small group of attached cottages benefiting from a huge garden. A short walk down the lane brings you to the village's common ground which has football nets and yet more space for the children to run around.

On arrival at the property the main door leads directly into the kitchen/diner. It's a well equipped room with dishwasher, microwave, fan oven, electric hobs, a washer dryer and all the crockery and utensils you might need for your stay. The kitchen has been completely replaced but it still retains all its original charm with a latched door and period style window. Venturing through the hallway you reach the living room which has two deep comfy sofas, a large television with Freeview and a DVD player. The owners have thoughtfully left a selection of DVD's and books to keep you entertained during your stay. This room is a period gem with marvellous old built in cupboards and gorgeous wooden window seats. Just the place to lose yourself in a Jane Austen novel.

Moving up the wide curved staircase you'll arrive at the wonderful master bedroom. This has been decorated in calm warm colours and has a king-size wooden bedstead, a large wardrobe and a wonderful wooden window seat for dreaming away your time and an en suite shower room with a beautiful curved shower enclosure. The twin bedroom has the same lovely wooden bedroom furniture and dual aspect windows benefiting from gorgeous views over the rolling countryside and down to the river. The family bathroom is a lovely space with a large double ended bath and over bath shower, a perfect spot for soaking away tired muscles after your Lake District adventures.

Wandering outside you'll find a wonderfully large garden with multiple places to enjoy an al fresco meal or glass of wine, you'll also find the large shed where there is table football to keep the family amused as well as bags of space for locking away bikes and kayaks should you care to bring them. The garden has multiple fruit trees and bushes including redcurrants, blackberries, pears, plums and gooseberries to name but a few. If you're lucky enough to be visiting when the fruit ripens then you can enjoy them yourselves! Children will love the tree house as an ideal hiding place from the parents. Just a short stroll from the cottage brings you to the village common where there are football posts and more space to keep the children amused. Why not enjoy a morning cuppa or a sunset glass of wine while the children (or indeed the big kids) turn cartwheels on the lawn?
