Dairy Cottage : England Vacation Rental by Owner Listing 842481ha
This unique cottage was originally part of the famous Stanwick Hall, residence of the Duchess of Northumberland. No expense has been spared in this recent conversion of old stone buildings into a beautiful single-storey hideaway. Hardwood floors, underfloor heating, a cosy log burner, handmade doors, a luxurious walk-in shower room tiled in Jerusalem limestone and a bespoke, well-equipped kitchen all combine to make a comfortable and romantic home from home. Impressive arched double doors from the bedroom and lounge and bi-fold doors from the kitchen lead out into the south facing gardens that overlook landscaped parkland. The spacious lounge is flooded with light from a large roof atrium and arched doors lead out from here to a secluded, south-facing patio with ancient parkland views and sounds of nature all around. Whilst retaining its old world charm, the Old Dairy is equipped with a high-end hi-fi, large plasma TV, bespoke furniture and every modern convenience for your 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. There is a lovely log burner, a large roof atrium and wide arched glass doors leading into the gardens. 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.
