There’s something strangely relaxing about watching chickens pottering about. And from the cottage’s sunny living room you can do just that.
The open-plan kitchen/living area is light and bright and overlooks the orchard with its ancient apple trees and shamelessly stylish hen house. There’s a big stone fireplace with a wood-burning stove which, come evening, makes cuddling up on the sofa with a glass of wine hard to resist.
On gorgeously sunny days, you can always sit outside and have lunch – or even breakfast.
There’s a light and airy double bedroom with a 5ft brass bed plus another bedroom that can be used as a single or a cosy twin. In the bathroom, you’ve got a separate bath as well as a power shower.
