Converted Stables lots of character & Wi-Fi in quiet valley 6 miles from coast

Lower Collaton is an old traditional farmhouse dating back to the Domesday Book and before. We have retired from serious farming, but in the fields in the quiet south facing valley are our small flock of Shetland, Jacob and Zwartble sheep. Chicken, and ducks can be found in the yard.

The Stables is a detached, charming and comfortable converted stable and hayloft which has retained all its character and its ancient exposed beams in all the rooms. It has been inspected and graded 4* by the A.A. Polished wood and slate floors, oak staircase, and south facing views from the upstairs living area.

The entrance hall with slate floor leads into a spacious double bedroom with king size bed, large walnut wardrobe and dressing table. A smaller twin bedded room is on the left, and bathroom with W.C., basin, shower in the bath, and combination washing machine/tumble drier. The rooms have their original gnarled old beams, pine floors and natural wood finishes.

Up the oak stairs the remainder of the Stables is open plan. The living area faces south with views of the fields and valley, and has a wood burning stove, sofa and easy chairs. The kitchen is fully equipped, with pine table and dresser, and has hand painted tiles above the worktop. Between the kitchen and living area is an informal eating area, with pine dining table and chairs.

Oil fired central heating (free of charge), wood burning stove, T.V., D.V.D., microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine / tumble drier, dishwasher, carry cot, high chair and various other little gadgets. Bed linen and towels are included in the price.

Outside there is a parking area and a paved patio with seating. Barbeque is available for our guests. One well behaved dog is very welcome, and would enjoy the lovely walks nearby.

The Stables are available from Easter through to late September. Lettings are from Friday to Friday.
