Cottage in England, United Kingdom

Property Description

Swallow Cottage is one of 2 cottages on the beautiful Buttercombe Barton Estate. Swallow is set in a Victorian walled garden with large (and nicely kept) lawn with herbaceous borders and rose-covered walls through which there is a gate to private parking spaces for up to 3 cars.

Swallow is an upside down house with the bedrooms on the ground floor floor to take advantage of the splendid views across the valley.

the first floor offers a centrally-heated, pine-floored open plan space with windows overlooking the garden and views across the valley. Comfortable sofas and an armchair guarantee relaxing evenings listening to music, watching TV (Satellite) or just rediscovering the delights of board games and reading after dinner.

The kitchen dining space, being part of the open plan area means that chefs will never be lonely (or short of helpers). The kitchen is well equipped to allow you to prepare gourmet meals - or just to warm up the occasional takeaway (when not firing up the BBQ in the garden). There are 8 place settings for meals - just in case a couple of friends drop in for lunch.

Three cosy ground-floor bedrooms, one double (with en suite), two twin bedrooms - one with full-sized bunk beds and all with sufficient space to store clothes.

The family bathroom has a shower over bath,WC and wash-basin, while the en-suite to the double bedroom has a shower with WC and wash-basin.

A cot is available on request, (please bring cot bed linen with you)
