Our 1st floor tastefully renovated gite with separate independent access, is attached to the main farmhouse in an acre of land, with its own private garden equipped with table and chairs for dining and a bbq. Plenty of space for off-road parking, A games room, terrace, pergola, vegetable garden and meadow.
The accommodation comprises of a cosy, sunny lounge/dining room, kitchen with separate pantry, bathroom and 2 large bedrooms. Bed linen and towels are included in the rental.
In the summer guests can profit from fresh fruit and vegetables in season, freshly picked from our garden. We also supply a complimentary bottle of wine and fresh local bread on arrival.
There are plenty of books, dvd's and games both indoors and out for your use during your stay. We can also loan you maps and guide books to help plan your days out. We have 2 adults and 2 teenage bikes at your disposal, but are welcome to bring your own as we have a lockable area to keep them safe. From spring to autumn there is also a games room with pool table, table tennis table and darts board plus a selection of outdoor games. In the meadow is a climbing frame with swings and a slide.
Immediately behind the property there is a very quiet footpath which leads to a myriad of tracks to wander safely and explore the countryside, either on foot or by bike. The area is a haven for wildlife, and as keen bird spotters, you will find numerous birds here that are extremely rare or not seen in the UK. Our star bird is the red backed shrikes, wryneck, black woodpeckers, hen harriers and short toed eagles. Wild animals we have seen around the property, so look out for wild boar, deer, fox, red squirrel, hare, stoat, weasel and dormouse.
The area is just as beautiful in spring, autumn and summer. In springtime the meadows are filled with an abundance of wild flowers, the colours of autumn are spectacular and a popular area for mushroom picking.
The kitchen has a fridge with small ice box (if not large enough we can put your frozen items in our freezer for you) gas cooker, hob, microwave, kettle, coffee-maker, toaster and washing machine. There is a separate pantry.
