The Cider House, our smallest cottage, is a Grade II listed, bank barn conversion (to the left of the main picture). Perfect for couples or small families, sleeping up to four people. With stunning views from all rooms and its own south facing, sun terrace overlooking the original cobbled and grassed courtyard to the garden and countryside views beyond. Two en-suite bedrooms, one king size and one single/small twin (perfect for children sharing). Can be booked with Nutcombe Barn to create one larger cottage sleeping up to 10 in 5 en-suite rooms.
The Cider House comprises of:
First Floor: Like Nutcombe Cottage and Nutcombe Barn, Cider house 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.
The kitchen/dining area: A shaker style kitchen fitted with black granite work surfaces fully equipped with a Smeg fridge/freezer, ceramic hob and electric oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster and kettle and plenty of crockery. There is a sociable round dining table with four chairs for cosy dinners in.
The open plan lounge area: Enjoy the comforts of home on our Next two-seater sofa or one of two armchairs, perfectly positioned to enjoy the views from the lounge window or watch the large flat screen TV with Freesat offering over 200 channels. There is also a DVD player and a small selection of books. The furniture is solid oak to match the flooring.
The two en-suite bedrooms are located on the lower floor where you will also find a washer/dryer concealed in a cupboard under the stairs.
The king size bedroom: Enjoy the perfect nights sleep in our wrought iron king size bed with a pocket sprung mattress with memory foam topper or just lie and look out of the window at the countryside views. Furnished with a large oak wardrobe with lower drawer and oak bedside cabinets. You can also enjoy long lazy soaks in the full size bath with an overhead shower in the limestone en-suite bathroom. We also supply a hairdryer, iron and ironing board.
The single/small twin bedroom: The smaller bedroom also has the luxury of a pretty wrought iron single bed with a pocket sprung mattress with a memory foam topper with a full-size trundle bed beneath so that the room can be set up as a small twin, making it perfect for two children. There is a large wardrobe with lower drawer and an oak bedside cabinet. You will also find yet another en-suite shower room with large walk in shower with rainfall shower head and massage jet system for the ultimate in luxury showering making Cider House perfect for families of three or four. There is access to the terrace from this room through French doors.
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 free Super-fast WiFi.
Linen: We supply crisp cotton linen with Egyptian cotton 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.
