Sleeps: 6 (3 Bedrooms)
Nutcombe Barn is our largest cottage and is the other half of a semi-detached Grade II listed barn conversion, next door to Cider house (to the right of the main picture). The perfect cottage for larger families sleeping up to six in three en-suite rooms, with stunning views across the valley.
Nutcombe Barn comprise of:
First Floor: Like Nutcombe Cottage and Cider house, Nutcombe Barn is a bank barn and therefore entry is from the rear of the property at ground level onto the first floor of the cottage. Here you will find an open plan living/kitchen/dining area with vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, solid English oak flooring and original stonework with the added bonus of a Juliet balcony where you get stunning views out over the pond to the countryside beyond.
The kitchen area is fitted with blue cupboards and solid granite work surfaces and is equipped with a built in fridge/freezer, ceramic hob and electric oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster and kettle and plenty of crockery and cutlery for several days. With a dishwasher no one will need to wash up, but they may just want to with the view from the window by the sink!
The open plan lounge/dining area has a large flat screen Smart TV with Freesat box offering over 200 channels as well as a DVD player with a small selection of DVD's and family games. No need to fight over seating, as there are three large leather sofas positioned for socializing or just watching TV or admiring the view. The furniture is solid oak to match the flooring and there is the added convenience of a small separate toilet with washbasin off the lounge area.
The dining area has a large oak dining table with six chairs. The table can be extended with the addition of inserts to create a much larger table which can seat up to 12 people, making it perfect for larger parties taking both Nutcombe Barn and Cider house (see below for details)
Upstairs bedroom Off the kitchen there is access to one of our king size en-suite bedrooms where you will find a wrought iron king size bed with oak bedside cabinets and wardrobe. There are views from the window out over the dog garden to the countryside beyond. The limestone, luxury en-suite shower room has a large walk in shower with rainfall shower head and massage jet system for the ultimate in luxury showering as well as a loo and washbasin.
The two further en-suite bedrooms are located on the lower floor where you will also find a washer/dryer and under stairs cupboard with ironing board, airer, hoover and table inserts. There are French doors from both the downstairs bedrooms onto the terrace at the rear of the cottage (see outdoor space)
The master bedroom offers plenty of space with wrought iron king size bed, solid oak bedside cabinets and added luxury of a large walk in wardrobe so plenty of space to store all your essentials. There is also a large limestone en-suite shower room with extra-large walk-in shower with rainfall shower head and massage jet system for the ultimate in luxury bathing.
The twin bedroom is a large room again with two full-size three-foot singles, oak bedside cabinets and large chest of drawers. There is an extra-large fitted wardrobe, so plenty of storage space. There is also a luxurious limestone bathroom with a full-size bath with overhead shower; so perfect for those who prefer to bathe rather than shower, or for families with children.
Large family gatherings To enable us to cater for larger parties, we have the capability of opening up between Nutcombe Barn and Cider House at first floor level to create one larger property that can sleep ten people in five en-suite rooms. This offers the perfect solution for large family gatherings like Christmas and New Year or just an extended family holiday. There is the option to have the furniture moved so that Nutcombe Barn becomes a social space and Cider House becomes a dining area. Please note This is not available during peak summer season.
Central Heating and WiFi All our cottages have full oil-fired central heating with unlimited free WiFi.
Linen All linen is provided including towels and T-towels. We ask that you bring your own beach towels and dog towels and that cottage supplies are not used for this purpose.
Outside Space Nutcombe Barn has its own south facing courtyard accessed from either of the two downstairs bedrooms which is equipped with dining furniture with parasol for alfresco dining, as well as two sun loungers. A perfect spot to sit and watch the swallows dipping on the pond across the courtyard and the views beyond.
At the rear of the property there is another seating area together with a BBQ for the perfect summer treat.
Family Friendly We have available a full-size wooden cot together with a highchair for our younger visitors. There is also a stair gate at the top of the stairs for their safety.
Dog friendly We happily accept one medium/large or two small dogs in Nutcombe Barn. We ask that dogs be kept off the furniture but do provide throws for those who cannot resist. We also request they are kept upstairs in the living area and they are not to be left unattended in the cottage. Visitors with dogs at Nutcombe Barn are asked to use our dog garden which is about 10 feet from the door and use the dog bin provided to clear up after their pet. You also have use of our three-acre field to exercise your dogs or just to observe the abundance of wildlife including, rabbits, badgers, the occasional deer and plenty of birds and buzzards flying overhead. Please see Your Dogs Holiday at Nutcombe for our Dog House Rules.
