The SpacePriory Cottage is the first home tucked away on the un-adopted lane of sociable Garfield Terrace built in 1881. A true tardis, the cottage can flexibly accommodate up to 8 guests sleeping, though with 2 double bedrooms and a single loft room I recommend it for 4 for comfort. (3 of the beds are pull-out daybeds/sofabeds and the cosy sitting room and diner comfortably seat 4; 6 max).
A quirky & deceptively spacious home, entrance is into a beautiful high ceilinged oak floored hallway and stairs rising to the split level first floor.
The cosy sitting room with log burning stove leads through to a long galley modern kitchen/ diner with single oven/hob, American fridge/freezer, breakfast bar area. Dining table & chairs in kitchen/diner & comfortable additional snuggle seating/ king guest daybed. French doors to sunny courtyard for additional parking or barbequing. Whilst currently awaiting landscaping, this area is a sun trap for the evening sun.. if lucky with weather it is delightful to sit out as the sun sets!
Family bathroom with power shower.
2 double bedrooms, the master with en-suite steps down to shower room,. Bedroom 2 is ideal for children, with single that pulls out to king size. Comfortably fits the single plus a cotbed (not supplied).
A new loft room complete with Juliet balcony provides further occasional sleeping for 1.
GCH throughout with a wood burning inglenook stove for cosy evenings. This old cottage is not suitable for wheelchair users nor ideal for small children. Guest AccessOff road parking for 1 car. Access to house, BBQ Courtyard/ extra parking, washer/dryer.
