The huge kitchen is built around a large island unit topped with a big slab of marble. With washing machine, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, microwave, 5 hob Range cooker with double oven. A secret door links to the Georgian House so that both can be taken together as Coulscott House sleeping 15 (17 with extra beds). Off the kitchen is a large L-shaped room, sitting and dining areas with woodburning stove and a minstrel’s gallery above, with comfortable settees, a dining table and chairs (can dine 10). There is a wall mounted Smart TV. In the master bedroom a super king-size four poster bed with, marble-lined en suite shower room. Twin bedroom, luxurious main marble-lined family bathroom.

The Old Farmhouse is also an ideal celebration house, as well as a perfect holiday destination, with many choosing it for a special birthday or anniversary weekend with their friends and family - an ideal opportunity to book Coulscott's fine-dining private chef who can cook up a wonderful 3 course meal or 7 course taster menu paired with delicious wines while you sip a glass of bubbly in front of the log burner - and of course he does the washing up!
