Farmhouse - Sleeps 14 - 22 with Hot Tub
The original Farmhouse is the largest of the holiday cottages at Sherrill Farm. With 7 bedrooms sleeping up to 22 guests, it is the perfect holiday home for extended family holidays or groups of friends coming together to celebrate an anniversary or special occasion. This period Farmhouse is packed full of character and has the added bonus of its own large private garden and an 8-seat hot tub. This nestles under the lee of a row of horse chestnut trees where in early spring a carpet of daffodils, primroses and bluebells bloom.
Ground floor: Enter the house through the front door into a large flag-stoned hall off which is a large lounge, a second ‘snug’ lounge, a dining room with massive pine table, a huge well-equipped kitchen with a utility room and a spacious double bedroom with 5ft bed and sofa bed and having an en-suite shower room and toilet. (This bedroom can easily be used as a family room with the addition of two single beds (which we can provide upon request). Also on the ground floor is a separate guest cloakroom.
Large squashy leather sofas and armchairs provide comfortable seating for guests in the main lounge which also has a big inglenook fireplace with a woodburner (logs available on request). There’s a music system in here with Wi-Fi and a large digital TV with Freeview. The smaller snug lounge, featuring a quaint Victorian tiled fireplace and TV. It can also be used as a bedroom having a double sofa bed. It’s a great space for younger members of the family to gather to play on their technology, leaving the larger lounge free for those wishing to socialise.
The impressive oak beamed kitchen is very well equipped to prepare everything from simple breakfasts to large banquets. Together with the utility rooms there seems to be two of every essential item including ovens, dishwashers, fridges, freezers, toasters, kettles, washing machines and tumble driers.
First floor: There are six spacious, light and airy bedrooms on the first floor:
- One Double bedroom with 5ft four-poster bed
- One Double bedroom with En-suite Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet
- One bedroom with four single beds
- One Twin bedroom
- Two Triple bedrooms with three single beds in each, one with en-suite bathroom
All the bedrooms have wardrobes, chests of drawers and bedside lighting.
Two of the bedrooms, including the ground floor family room, have 4-poster double beds.
In addition to the three en suites, family bathrooms and guest WC, there are also two separate family bathrooms, both having baths with showers over, sinks and WCs.
To the rear of The Farmhouse is a large enclosed tree-lined garden, laid mainly to lawn, excellent for games of football, rounders, frisbee, or just a spot of gentle relaxation in the sun with a good book or your morning paper. The garden has a BBQ terrace with 2-3 BBQs and a luxury 8-seat hot tub making it a great place for eating and socialising, whether in the heat of the afternoon or at night under the stars.
