Lambside House Luxury Large Family Cottage
A Georgian ‘gentleman’s residence’ once owned by Edward Baring of banking renown, this beautiful house has been refurbished in a way that retains every bit of style and grandeur whilst leaving no doubt about its friendly atmosphere – this house loves people.
A large, spacious house – ideal accommodation for a group, family celebration, a friends’ weekend away or even a hen party. Also perfect for wedding receptions…
The house forms the cornerstone of a large farmyard with disused stone barns on all the other sides and completely surrounded by peaceful pastureland.
Through the columns of the entrance, a wide hall with flagstone floor has an elegant living room on either side, both of which open out, with the use of large double doors, to create a stylish expanse that would suit any party or special occasion at any time of year.
The enormous kitchen/dining room is the perfect place to gather. It is fully equipped with every conceivable requirement, including a breadmaker and it has an Aga to complete the picture, plus an electric oven and hob.
The ground floor also has a sunny playroom with a daybed, a pull out bed underneath, games and toys including table football, as well as a piano! There is a utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer, sink and downstairs toilet.
Upstairs there are five bedrooms: one huge king sized room with a massive en suite bathroom (with his and hers sinks!); one further kingsized; a twin room, an en suite twin room (which can be converted into a superking bed if requested) and another room with a single bed and full size bunk beds. We can also put a folding Z bed into one of the rooms if you require. There is also a family bathroom with a bath and shower over. The house sleeps 11 and, with the daybeds and pullouts, will sleep 14 comfortably.
Outside, a large lawn to the front of the house has garden furniture and a wooden wendy house, and it is all just minutes from the coastal path and beyond. There is a small paddock – ideal for ball games, and out the back of the house is an outside toilet, log shed, bin store and a small herb garden.
As well as a woodburner in one of the lounges, Lambside House is centrally heated and has all the standard facilities that we offer. Superior 100% cotton white bed linen and big fluffy towels are all provided, as well as tea-towels, bath mats and environmentally friendly cleaning materials. We put delicious local organic milk in the fridge for your arrival – with our compliments, along with enough recycled paper toilet rolls, Fair Trade tea, coffee, sugar and local organic herbal tea to get you started!
PLEASE NOTE that due to the remote location and lack of highspeed broadband, the internet speed is very slow. It is fine for emails and general web browsing on a limited number of devices. We hope to get highspeed broadband infrastructure in the local area in 2018…
