General Description

Accommodation for 8 people but can be expanded to 10 by using a sofa bed located in the living room. Please call the office to book for 10 people.

Townend Stables is a converted Victorian holiday cottage, which welcomes up to two dogs and sleeps up to eight guests across four rooms. Two extra guests can stay using the sofa bed located in the living room. The cottage was refurbished in 2018 to a high standard.

On entering the cottage through the front door, guests will find themselves in a spacious hallway with passages leading to the kitchen, living area and to the bedrooms upstairs. Take the door to the left-hand-side for the kitchen and breakfast room, which used to be part of the main farmhouse (now next door). The kitchen features wide counters and plenty of storage cupboards, as well as a split oven and grill, electric hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge-freezer and a washing machine. The L-shaped room also features a breakfast table to seat eight guests.

Follow the passage past the downstairs WC and around to the back of the cottage (this area was originally the stables) and you’ll pass a door to your left, which leads out to the garden. Continue onwards and the door to your right leads to the dining room and the door ahead opens out into the living room. Both of these rooms also adjoin. The large dining table seats up to eight diners. The living room is spacious and comfortable and seating is provided by one two-seater settee, one three-seater and the three-seater sofa-bed. The heating is provided by a wood burner. A Blu-Ray player is available for the smart TV, for which the cottage owners have provided access to a Netflix account for guests to use. There is an exterior door in the living room that provides quick access to the parking spaces outside.

Upstairs are the four bedrooms (including two en-suite) and the main bathroom. The bedroom to the left of the stairs contains a king-size bed, a large window overlooking the courtyard, a large wardrobe, chest-of-drawers, coloured mood lighting and an en-suite bathroom with a walk-in power shower, WC and heated towel rail.

Follow the corridor to find a double bedroom with views through the large window over pastures towards the coast. A wardrobe and chest-of-drawers provide ample storage. The twin bedroom contains two single beds, a double wardrobe and chest-of-draws, and shares the same view as the double room. The second double bedroom is affectionately known as Russell’s room, named after the crow (Russell Crow, geddit?) that resided in the ventilation hole in that room before the stables were converted into the cottage. This room retains some characterful features and contains a built-in wardrobe and en-suite bathroom with a walk-in shower, WC and heated towel rail.

The bathroom features a free-standing bath situated underneath another large window, allowing guests to have a relaxing soak with a view. There is also a walk-in power shower, heated towel rail and WC.

The cottage is well equipped for modern living, with plenty of plug sockets and USB sockets to charge phones in each bedroom. The cottage is warmed by radiators upstairs and in the ground floor hallway. The kitchen and living room are heated by underfloor heating. Please note that dogs are welcome downstairs, but not upstairs or on the furniture. The owners also ask that noise is kept to a minimum outside the cottage after 10pm, so as not to disturb the neighbours and their children.

Outside there is an enclosed triangular shaped garden, laid to lawn with seating for eight people. From the rear entrance of the property there is a step down onto a walkway and step up onto the lawn.

Parking is available to the front of the cottage and the owners request that 3 small cars (or 2 larger ones) park parallel to the large window along the length of the front of the building. If a 3rd or 4th car requires a space, then please use the gravel area to the right hand side of the property in the area where the gas tank is found. 

 The courtyard is a communal space for turning and shouldn't be blocked in order to be used by guests and our neighbours.

A secure garage is available in which to lock bikes, but please mention that you require access upon booking.

*Please note that this property is not suitable for stag or hen parties.
