Luxurious living, steeped in history: Dating from 1820 and fully renovated in 2000 and 2012, the Coach House and the Dairy Cottage were originally part of Stanwick Hall, the home of the Duchess of Northumberland. The Coach House and Dairy Cottage both enjoy great privacy and their own gardens, but can also be combined to form elegant and spacious accommodation for up to 13 guests in great comfort.

Details for the Dairy Cottage Converted in 2012, this architect-designed delightful hideaway is all on one level and has its own large garden. The large living area (8m x 5m) is open-plan, with a dining area at one end and a well equipped kitchen leading off.

Leading off the lounge is a spacious bedroom, again with hand-made double arched glass doors opening onto private south-facing gardens.Dairy Cottage is flooded with light whatever the weather and the use high quality natural materials throughout - oak floors and hand-made doors, Jerusalem stone in the shower room and a solid wood kitchen - create a calm and peaceful environment for relaxation. Environmental sustainability was important to us when we designed this conversion, as was the need to stay true to the original building and re-use as much of the original stone and other materials as possible, so the Dairy Cottage has underfloor heating supplied by a wood-pellet boiler to keep it cozy and warm in the winter months.
