The Byre provides homely self-contained holiday accommodation over two floors. The ground floor of The Byre opens onto a large hallway and then into an open-plan kitchen/diner, with a stable door to the front. A large country-kitchen style dining table with chairs and pew seating stands adjacent to a small corner kitchen area. Facilities include a fan assisted electric oven, ceramic hob, microwave and fridge with icebox. Perfect for those family meals in.
Across the hallway, is the sitting room with log burner, two, two-seater leather sofas, two bean bags and flat-screen FreeSat TV with DVD player.
On the first floor, the cottage has three bedrooms. There is a splendidly large double bedroom with aspect to the front and side of the property, and two single bedrooms with single beds. The bathroom has a bath with shower over, WC and hand basin.
There is a hi-fi system in the double bedroom with CD player and radio. There is a wide selection of fiction and non-fiction books for both adults and children, together with a chest of drawers in the hall full of games for all ages.
Guests are welcome to use the shared external utility room to the side of the property, with washing machine and tumble dryer for guest use (and a separate washer/dryer for owners’ use). The position of the boiler here, keeps this room beautifully warm in the winter and is ideal for drying and storing walking gear, with clothes airer and rack for guest use. Bicycles can also be stored here, as the room has its own lockable door.
Bed linen and hand towels are provided for your stay (bath towels can be supplied at a small extra charge – please indicate on booking).
Travel cot and highchair are available (please request on booking)
This is a no smoking cottage. No smoking inside please.
The Byre sits in extensive shared grounds, full of trees shrubs and flowers. There is space to sit out at the front on the courtyard (best in the morning when the sun rises over the forest) and to the rear is a small lawned area for guests’ use, screened by trees and shrubs, with garden furniture and barbecue.
We are very pleased to welcome dogs to The Byre, they will certainly enjoy the miles of walks in the locality but ask that they are kept on a lead, as there are free ranging hens, and sheep in the surrounding fields.
On your day of departure, please be ready to leave by 11.00, to allow cleaning and restocking for the next guests. Keys should be returned to the owners at the adjacent cottage.
