Former coach house of historic 17th century inn transformed into a stylish, double-height living space, made cosy with underfloor heating and wood burning stove. Sleeps 4, one double room with en suite bathroom plus a twin bedroom, high spec shower/wet room. Craftsman kitchen. Light and airy, yet comfortable interior space, looking out onto miraculously quiet courtyard with arbour seating.
Step out from the courtyard to famous artisan and vintage shopping, plus elegant cafes, on Catherine Hill.
It has to be seen to be understood. Wow factor high!
Minimal furnishing, yet comfortable. Combination of contemporary and artisan features with original Fontana lighting. Free wifi plus TV (and home cinema projection if requested in advance).
Things we worry about: children bouncing on beds or operating the wood burner.
Enter through courtyard door which gives access to 2 other dwellings, so mutual respect is important. Use of courtyard is encouraged. Off-street parking for guests. Local amenities within walking distance.
Interaction with guests
We all have access to the same private courtyard, so we will be on-hand for questions/help but non-invasive! Booklets and a file of information about household matters and local events and cultural opportunities are on site, but feel free to ask about/discuss particulars.
Other things to note
Currently, the old inn roof is being renovated (March - April) which means scaffolding around the building and some machinery in the courtyard. However, this does not affect The Coach House, which remains peaceful and aloof!
Things we worry about: children bouncing on beds with an open balustrade and long drop. The space is exciting! Please discuss safety with your children. Stair gates can be provided on request, but as there are no doors (except for bathrooms and cupboards), parents will need to keep a watchful eye.
