This Grade II Listed Coach House forms one side of a magnificent courtyard. It was formerly the stabling for the horses and accommodation for the grooms of Stowlangtoft Hall. Available for letting all year round (weekend lets too); the Coach House is a generous, split-level property that provides very comfortable accommodation for 6 people. In addition there is a sofa bed.
Entry is from the courtyard itself. First find the bedrooms – the double bedroom has a sizable en-suite shower room. Two twin bedrooms and a huge family bathroom complete the accommodation on this level. Through a double width landing, and down a short flight of stairs, the fantastic open plan living/dining space is set out before you with four large conservation skylights above and double doors in front of you, opening onto the private patio.
The living area is huge with luxurious sofas (one is a sofa bed), enough to seat 8 comfortably. A wood burner keeps things cosy. The open plan kitchen and dining area is a great space to entertain friends and family. The kitchen is fully equipped (dishwasher and washing machine are here of course) and has fantastic views onto the pretty, walled garden in front of you – the ideal secure play area for toddlers. Luxury cotton towels are provided for all guests and for your entertainment there is a flat screen Smart TV, WiFi Internet, and digital Hi-Fi along with a selection of books and games.
You also have your own private patio area; perfect for dining outdoors on a warm evening (a BBQ is available from the owners). Larger communal gardens spread out to the left of the house. This cottage is a rural retreat ideally suited to young families.
