The Old Church Room is a detached, cleverly converted property in the popular village of Middleton, meticulously prepared for each guest assuring you of a comfortable stay in an interesting, unique holiday cottage. There is easy access to numerous footpaths taking you round the village and further afield from The Old Church Room.

The heart of the holiday cottage is the bright and airy sitting room. Many windows mean that the space is flooded with natural light, complementing the calming tones found in the decoration and furnishings. Wooden flooring flows through the ground floor and into the kitchen diner which is entered through glass French doors, creating an open plan feel. A solid fuel stove in the sitting room is great for chillier months in the property where guests can warm their toes by the fire. The light, farmhouse style kitchen has all amenities required should guests wish to self-cater. The second set of French doors lead into the generously sized, enclosed garden complete with garden furniture. Pretty vines drape over the garden walls and a tidy lawn creates a relaxing environment.

The newly refurbished ground floor shower room has an illuminated mirror, skylight, rainfall shower head and heated towel rail providing comfort for the four guests. Upstairs, guests will find two bedrooms in an attractive loft conversion. The well-uniformed furniture provides ample space and each bedroom boasts countryside views. Guests will also benefit from the properties two private parking spaces. Shop: 2 miles (Farm Shop 0.5m) Pub: 150 yards.
