Comfortable and homely, the traditional stone farmhouse has a large open plan living/dining room with an extending dining table, comfortable seating, and a piano; suitable for small workshops as well as just relaxing. There is a wood fired Rayburn stove which runs the central heating in winter. There are lots of books, a chess set and other games, and WiFi. The kitchen has an electric hob, oven, microwave, fridge-freezer and dishwasher. (A washing machine is available for guests’ use in the barn.) French windows open onto a part-roofed south facing terrace with barbecue, and a large lawned garden with cherry and birch trees. There are two firepits, one in the garden and another at the top of the valley.
The upstairs accommodation is as follows:
First floor –
Bedroom 1 with double bed,
Bedroom 2 with double bed and pair of bunk beds. Both these rooms have large windows overlooking garden, farm and countryside.
Bedroom 3 with one single bed and a floor mattress, with views of the garden, yurt and paddocks.
Bathroom with bath, shower and toilet, plus a second separate toilet cubicle.
Second floor –
Bedroom 3 with two single beds and a floor mattress. Views to the east over garden and fields.
Bedroom 4 – a dormitory with one single, two pairs of bunk beds, and extra double and single mattresses which can be used on the floor. Roof windows give lovely, far reaching views to the north and south.
Two further shower rooms with toilets are in a lean-to building, accessed from just outside the house – very pleasant in the warmer months.
“The farmhouse is beautifully furnished and has everything you need, including a view out over the paddocks and a shaded veranda for dining al fresco…My family and I loved our time here and can’t wait to return.”
The Studio is a light, bright upstairs space suitable for seminars, music, dance/yoga and art work. There is space for about nine people using yoga mats, and up to twenty seated. Closer to the road than the other buildings but still with a very peaceful atmosphere. Downstairs there is a large open plan dining area and small kitchen, and a shower/toilet.
Our beautiful Mongolian yurt is 5m in diameter, with rugs, mattresses, cushions and floor chairs. A very relaxing space, reserved for quiet, contemplative activities and healing. Two massage couches are available.
