Granary Cottage has 2 entrances. The main door is situated mid way to the first floor so it is very easy for carrying cases and luggage up the five steps to the first floor. In from the hallway is the spacious comfortable living room with its comfy sofas, an open fireplace, freeview flatscreen television, dvd player and garden doors onto the patio.
Kitchen & dining details
Each cottage has an electric double oven cooker, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, food processor. There although there is also an excellent range of cooking equipment, crockery and glassware we do try to make sure there are plenty of extra useful utensils you cannot think you will need until the moment you do. The farmhouse dining table seats eight people. The separate utility room has a toilet cloakroom, washing machine and a tumble drier.
There are two double bedrooms, both with en-suite shower rooms, a twin bedded room and a room with bunk beds with a bathroom between them. Sheets, duvets with covers and pillows with cases are provided, as are extra duvets and pillows should you need them . We do provide a radio alarm clock in case you have to be up and about at a certain time but for those of you who have time to enjoy the peace and quiet it is very easy to oversleep here at Gorwell before you wake up to the beautiful countryside. The double rooms both have a flat screen tv for those who like to snuggle under the duvet to watch a good film.
A cot, highchair and a stair gate are also provided in the cottage but we do ask guests to provide their own cot bedding.
The cottage is centrally heated and has a log burner in the inglenook in the living room. Wood is provided for this and along with the electricity and heating this is included in the rental rate.
