Description

This gorgeous rural retreat is the perfect countryside escape to bring all your favourite people together in a quiet and beautiful setting. The Hatchery sits within a luscious 3-acre mature garden, with surrounding woodland and rolling fields as far as the eye can see… pure bliss!  

This stunning holiday home offers guests a truly wonderful stay and every effort has been made to ensure you have everything you could possibly need for a fantastic getaway. This plush pad accommodates up to eight guests across 4 beautiful ensuite bedrooms, each individually named for that added luxury. You can rest and recharge those batteries in this utterly tranquil setting.

At the heart of this home is the contemporary, open plan kitchen, dining and sitting area. Skylights, large windows and bi-fold doors allow the light to flood this spacious room creating a light and bright atmosphere. This space is a place to be together, whether that is in the fully equipped kitchen, which boasts all the essentials to cook up a beautiful feast and indulge around the dining table, or better yet, swing open the bi-fold doors and enjoy your meals on the garden terrace, embracing the glorious sunshine. The sitting area offers guests a place to relax in. Why not find a great movie to watch on the 75” smart TV, snuggle up around the wood burner with your nose in a novel, or simply sit and chat with loved ones?

As if you needed any more reason to stay here, the surrounding gardens are truly wonderful. The south facing terrace has both dining for lazy lunches al fresco and lounge seating for relaxing in. Two hand carved stone loungers are the perfect place to bask in the sunshine. To catch the evening sunsets, head round to the pond patio which overlooks the large wildlife pond for a tipple or two. The large lawn garden is great for children to run round, play a spot of croquet or star gaze in the midnight sky.

Why we love this property: In a beautiful rural location, with equally gorgeous interiors.
