You’ll feel peaceful in the simple beamed sitting room with its deep windowsills, comfy sofas and ancient stone fireplace: on chilly days you can light the wood-burner, setle down with a book and enjoy the total quiet. The kitchen is a good size with industrial-style stainless steel tops and there’s a separate dining room with another fireplace and big wooden table.
Upstairs bedrooms are old-fashioned and spotless with gorgeous views, crisp cotton sheets and pretty rugs on the floors. You have your own garden overlooking the Ladybower Reservoir with a barbecue and outdoor seating. Resident swallows come back every year, there are buzzards mewling overhead and even a turkey vulture. It’s not the sort of place to forget anything – the track up takes ten minutes to drive and you have to open and close two gates.
City dwellers will be bowled over and rejuvenated by the landscape, and we hope will be in sympathy with the aims of the place – this is one of our Community Champions.
