Rowley Stone Cottages are situated within 20 acres of land in a small rural hamlet in the midst of rolling countryside, yet close to local facilities. They are thought to date back to the 1600s when they began life on the Mainsfield Farm as the dairy, cowsheds and a haybarn. Following a £1.2 million conversion, they have been beautifully restored with particular attention paid to detail and specification to provide four wonderful holiday cottages. They all offer open plan living spaces with a living flame fire and wall mounted Smart TV, whilst the kitchen area is superbly equipped. Offering unique service to guests, the cottages sit within a secure gated development and have private parking and a 9am-5pm on-site concierge service available if help is needed for less mobile guests. On arrival, guests will be welcomed within the reception area and will receive their keys and cottage information. A generous welcome pack awaits, as well as fluffy robes and slippers.Wagtail Cottage (UK33096) and Peewit Cottage (UK33161) are semi-detached, ground floor cottages with two ground floor double bedrooms and a shower room with a double walk-in shower.Swallow Cottage (UK33159) is an attractive first floor, loft-style cottage with vaulted ceilings and Velux windows throughout, and a high bar-style dining table and chairs.
