The Coach House

Magnificent Detached Cottage

Built of local limestone, and facing directly onto a courtyard with spectacular views, this superb, detached cottage is popular with couples and families. Converted from a coach house and stables this is our largest cottage accommodating from 2 to 7 people in comfort and luxury while retaining many original features.

From the entrance hall, walk into a magnificent lounge with vaulted ceiling, timber trusses and exposed woodwork. French windows have incredible views of the high hills surrounding Swainsley Farm. For our guests ultimate comfort we have just installed a new wood burning (biomass) stove and a very large flat screen TV.

Romantic gallery bedroom 

A flight of open tread stairs leads to a romantic, galleried, king-size double bedroom overlooking the lounge. On the ground floor we have recently completed a major refurbishment of the master bedroom which now has a king-size double bed and a deluxe, en-suite shower room/toilet. There is also a deluxe family bathroom with bath/over-bath shower, WC and hand-basin. Both bathrooms have heated towel rails and under-floor heating.

A smaller bedroom has two full size single beds in a ‘bunks’ arrangement (suitable for adults or children). The cottage also has a folding single bed and so sleeps upto 7 people.

New Deluxe Kitchen

A new deluxe kitchen with granite worktops is equipped with a large American style fridge/freezer, hob, oven and a full range of cooking and dining ware. The kitchen has a high vaulted ceiling with lots of exposed woodwork and has stunning views of the Manifold Valley.

This cottage is very spacious and, with the exception of the gallery bedroom, all rooms are on the ground floor (making it suitable for visitors with limited mobility).
