On the edge of the hamlet of Rawridge, attached to the owners’ house, is this comfortable cottage created from a byre. Perhaps you are planning a romantic trip for two, or a peaceful getaway. If so then this is the place to be. French windows open into a stylish and well-thought out open-plan living/dining/kitchen, centred by an inglenook fireplace housing a woodburning stove. Exposed whitewashed beams and low lighting create a lovely place to settle down on the sofa, or to enjoy a romantic dinner for two. A modern well-equipped kitchen lies at the back of the layout, adding to the warm, homely feel of the accommodation. Oak stairs lead up to a double bedroom under the eaves with sloping ceiling and skylight windows projecting lovely views, and a smart shower-room suite. Wake up to the beautiful interior, then enjoy a cup of tea outside in the small paved and enclosed sitting-out area, with wonderful scenery across the valley.
