Fully renovated by the owners with care and attention to detail, Troutsdale Farm offers quality accommodation of real character and charm and seamlessly combines all the old original features to still give a 'barn feel' with modern design and home comforts that make them ideal for family get-togethers. Kitchen/Dining: Well equipped, hand crafted from oak with double Belfast sink, oak and granite worktops, with large dining table (seating 6). Lounge: Spacious and comfy with Clear view log burning stove, flat screen TV and DVD player and French Doors leading to garden with views over open countryside. Double Sofa bed. Hallway: Beautiful original floor and features, with downstairs toilet room just off, and open tread staircase leading to 1st and 2nd floors. 1 x DOUBLE BEDROOM with en-suite 1 x DOUBLE BEDROOM 1 x TWIN BED ROOM Central Heating is underfloor on the ground floor and radiators on the first floor Exposed original beams, stone and brickwork through and solid oak flooring on first floor. There is off road car parking and an enclosed garden area, ideal for sitting out and barbecues. Separate laundry room with washing machine and sink plenty of room for muddy boots. Doorstep footpaths lead to circular nature trail around Tittesworth Reservoir. In November 2011 we won the 'MOST ECO-FRIENDLY HOLIDAY LET' category in the 'Fields of Opportunity' national competition and then went on to become the OVERALL WINNER out of all 5 categories. The greener features of the barn are carefully incorporated so that you hardly know they are there and require no expertise or knowledge. Central heating comes from the ground source heat pump and solar panels. Rainwater harvesting system works for all grey water. . Timbers replaced in the conversions were cut from local woods, and we have planted 20 acres of new woodland. The traditional lime plastered walls are painted in Earthbourne natural Clay paint, the windows are all made from wood and painted with organic linseed oil paints, Sheeps wool insulation is used throughout the building, and natural clay aggregate forms the floor insulation in the limestone floor. There are 4 herb borders from which guests can enjoy and pick their own herbs. The property have been inspected by VISIT ENGLANDS ACCOMMODATION GRADING SCHEME and have been awarded 4 STARS as well as a coveted GOLD AWARD. Due to the type of property and location both properties are not suitable for what is known as 'house party venue' or for 'louder' hen or stag parties - we can recommend other nearby places if you are after this type of accommodation.More
