This superb two-bedroom property near Bath forms the wing of a 17th Century former farmhouse with some later Georgian additions. The spacious, centrally-heated accommodation offers high quality, modern facilities combined with period features, which include a fantastic inglenook fireplace, original bread ovens and oak beams.
The ground floor is open plan, incorporating the kitchen, sitting room and dining area. The large, triple-aspect kitchen has two original bread ovens (non- working) as an interesting feature and a superb solid oak floor. It is equipped with all the usual modern appliances, including an electric range-style cooker an...d dishwasher. French doors lead onto the well-maintained garden, which has patio furniture for guests to use and views over Marksbury village.
The sitting room and dining area has an attractive stone mullion window overlooking the front garden and a large inglenook fireplace. An initial supply of fuel for the fire is included in the rental price. There is a large, comfortable sofa and chairs and oak dining table and chairs. The television is a 42 inch flat screen and there is also a DVD player, iPod docking station and free wireless internet access.
Stairs lead to the first floor, where a large double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with roll-top bath, WC and washbasin. The double bed has an antique-style metal frame and a high quality pocket-sprung mattress. The second double bedroom, smaller than the first, also has a metal-framed double bed with pocket-sprung mattress, stone mullion window and its own en-suite shower room. A good quality put-you-up bed can be provided to accommodate an extra guest/child in the first bedroom, and a travel cot is also available.
There is ample parking on the large driveway.
The standard of furniture, furnishings, carpets, equipment, bedlinen and towels throughout this property is high. It has not yet been formally assessed for a star rating, but prospective guests can be reassured that the standard of accommodation and facilities surpasses that of our other holiday property The Bungalow (sleeps 2 people), also available via this website, which has been assessed as 4 Star, with a Gold Award, by Visit Britain.
The property is ideally situated for visiting Bath, Bristol, Wells and the many other attractions the West Country offers. Longleat, Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury and the Cotswolds are all within easy reach and the area is excellent for walkers and cyclists, with many interesting footpaths and cycle routes.
Please note this is a non-smoking property and regretfully we are unable to take pets.Read more
