The Bothy, a farm holiday flat for two, and romantic hideaway in the lovely Winster valley
The Bothy at Cowmire Hall is a delightful, first-floor holiday flat in a converted loft, consisting of a hall, large living-room / kitchen open to the roof, a shower-room and a double bedroom. There is also a gallery or sleeping-platform above the kitchen area which can be accessed via a ladder from the living room. Here you will find two beds which may be used at your own risk for children over eight or for your occasional athletic guests (bed-linen extra).
The kitchen is well-equipped, with an oil-fired Raeburn cooker that also provides hot water and central heating. There is also a wood stove (with a supply of dry logs), a television set with DVD player, and good quality furniture (but no telephone, though ours may be used in emergencies, if you have no mobile). Fuel, bed-linen and towels are included. The flat is suitable for two people to sleep but is equipped for six people to eat.
There is a utility room on the ground floor (separate entrance) with a sink, washing-machine, tumble-drier and iron, a second loo, and space for boots, bicycles etc. The rest of the ground floor is taken up by the cellar where Cowmire Hall Damson Gin is made. There is a small outside sitting area with table and barbecue.
The flat looks out to the south over a farm-yard to Cowmire Hall - a C16 pele tower extended in the late C17, where the owners, Oliver and Victoria Barratt live - its garden and the Winster Valley. To the north the view is of a rocky field. There is not normally any livestock in this farm-yard, though tractors come and go. Guests may park cars here.
