Beautiful cosy living space

Heather Cottage Living Room

An inviting, warm and sunny room, this elegant living space which has been lovingly restored has French Windows to the rear, where the sun streams in in the afternoons, and a large deep-seated window overlooking the village to the front.

A wealth of beautiful oak beams, original artwork, deep oak windowsills and warm subtle lighting blend with the honey colour of the floor and the sumptuous soft furnishings to create a delightful and seductively cosy ambiance.

Lie back on the wonderfully soft leather sofa to catch up with your significant other, watch your favourite TV programmes, or simply allow yourself to drift away, lulled by the hypnotic dancing flames of the hand-crafted tunnel fire.

The Snug

Heather Cottage Snug

The natural stone tiles in the living room run through into the snug, along with the soft lighting, oak beams and beautiful fabrics. A lovely versatile space, the snug can be used as a quiet area to catch up on a little work (if you really must!) It is perfect as a cosy nook to snuggle down on the sofa to at the side of the stunning tunnel fire to finish off that bestseller, or just set the dining table, open the wine, light the candles in the candelabra and enjoy a romantic dinner a deux!
