The en-suite bathroom has a large bath and separate shower area again with underfloor heating and contemporary w.c. and fittings.
All of the showers throughout the property are powerful ‘Aqualisa Quartz Digital’ technology showers and have been tiled throughout, creating a wet-room for each shower room.
The property has many unique benefits, mainly its low running costs having been externally clad with insulation and a rendered finish. Each room has its own thermostat to control the underfloor heating and there are also solar evacuated tubes on the roof to assist with the hot water. There is a large thermal water store in the property being run by the solid fuel burner in the garage. This provides all the hot water and central heating for both the farmhouse and the cottage holiday let.
A lovely two bedroom stone cottage is positioned detached from the main farmhouse. You enter centrally to the property into an open plan living kitchen area with access to the two bedrooms to either side. Both large bedrooms have their own shower room, similar to the main house along with each having fitted wardrobe space. From the living kitchen area, there is a rear door out to a patio area with space and plumbing for a timber clad solid fuel hot tub for guests to enjoy.
