The beautiful natural surroundings of the Wye Valley are reflected in the interior of the house. Farrow and Ball muted tones, natural linen and wool upholstery run through each room to give a modern farmhouse feel. The oak and stone floors throughout the ground floor all have underfloor heating, making it exceptionally cosy in winter.
You enter the house via the back door into the boot room which then leads into kitchen.
The kitchen is really rather special with a wonderful large island where you can prepare meals whilst gazing at the Black Mountains. Use the stainless steel SMEG eight gas burner with two electric ovens to prepare anything from a simple supper to a special occasion dinner. The kitchen is well-equipped with a large fridge freezer, walk-in larder, wine cooler, cuisinart food processor, Kenwood microwave, Nutri Bullet, Dualit coffee machine and milk frother.
We have our own Red Kite spring water available from every tap in the house so you will be drinking and bathing in delicious pure spring water direct from its source throughout your stay.
There is a utility room just off the kitchen with a washing machine and tumble dryer.
