THE COACH HOUSE

The bedrooms and sitting room have been designed on the first floor to enjoy the beautiful views.

The Stable House and Coach House occupy the most privileged position, surrounded by unspoilt countryside, a picture perfect setting creating a true Cotswold feel. The property is accessed via timber gates leading to a driveway providing off road parking for several cars. The beautifully stocked gardens lie to either side of the drive and directly to the front of the house and beyond. There are many facets to the gardens, with gravelled areas accessed from the main reception rooms which anchor the house to gardens and provide the perfect spot to take in the views. There are dispersed areas of levelled lawn that surround the main house and The Coach House, with some attractive arched walkways and mature shrubbery. Beneath The Coach House is a double garage ideal for classic cars.
