Weir House, set in its own pretty garden, and down a private driveway, is the biggest and most beautiful of all our cottages.
In fact it’s so big, with five en suite bedrooms, a games room, a drawing room and dining room, as well as a big kitchen that the word cottage is a bit of a misnomer.
Stairs lead up to a galleried landing lit by a round oeil de boeuf window and a large hall lantern. There’s a much loved rocking horse, a doll’s house in a little alcove in the hall, and under the stairs, the children’s den, with dressing up clothes and a puppet theatre.
The kitchen, floored in honey coloured Cotswold stone with shaker units; has a big island unit; a vast American style side by side fridge/freezer with ice maker; a range cooker and two dishwashers. Doors lead out onto the terrace. To the left of the kitchen is the utility room and downstairs cloakroom.
At the far end of the dining room there’s an arch to the oak floored games room, which is dominated by a 42' plasma television with surround sound; and a wall of bookshelves. Two five foot tables can be added to the dining table, so that in effect the games room becomes an extension of the dining room.
The large drawing room; has a Gothic arched fireplace in stone, and a high pitched ceiling with massive beams. A door to the left of the fireplace leads into a corridor, off which open the three downstairs bedrooms. They all have en suite bathrooms or shower rooms.
The other two bedrooms are on the first floor, up the stairs from the hall. The twin room has an en suite bathroom, tiled in Carrara marble to match the top of a twin basin antique French pitch pine vanity unit.
The fifth bedroom is large and magnificent, with a high pitched ceiling and an impressive six foot wide half tester bed. Up a flight of narrow stairs in the bedroom is the large en suite bath and shower room.
The terraces on each side are perfectly positioned to get sun in the morning and afternoon, Children will love the swing and seesaw; grown-ups will enjoy croquet, reading in the hammock, a quiet tête à tête in the Italian garden, or a boisterous barbecue on the terrace off the kitchen.
