Hare Cottage, sleeps 4, Somerset
There is step-free access to the cottage, all of which is at a single level. It consists of an open plan kitchen and sitting room, with a double bedroom, a twin bedroom and a wet room. The floors are all solid light oak, except in the wet room where there are mosaic sized non-slip floor tiles. All windows and external doors are double-glazed hardwood. Internal doors are waxed light oak. There is free gas-powered central heating and fibre optic Wi-Fi throughout. Towels, crisply laundered bed linen, soap powder, washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets are provided without charge. In addition, a welcome pack of fresh bread, butter, milk, coffee beans, tea, sugar, eggs, cheese and a selection of our own apple juice, cider, jams and chutneys is provided on arrival.
Open Plan Kitchen / Sitting Room
External access is through a wide stable door. The fitted kitchen is wheelchair friendly with built-in under counter oven, fridge, separate freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer and storage cupboards. At counter level is a butler’s sink with easy turn lever mixer tap, glass induction hob, microwave, toaster and kettle.
A full range of pots, pans and crockery is provided. This includes bone china tea cups and saucers, an electric coffee grinder with glass cafetiere and hand cut crystal wine glasses and tumblers.
In the sitting area there is a shabby chic dining table with leather covered dining chairs, a 2 seater leather sofa, and two leather tub chairs. Also provided are an adjustable wall-mounted 40” flat screen freeview TV & video player.
The front patio, outside the kitchen/sitting room, is ideal for a quiet drink at the end of a hard afternoon sightseeing. It overlooks the croquet lawn where all guests are welcome to try their hand. For the novice, Robin is usually available for a free lesson or two. Beyond the croquet lawn are five acres of enclosed parkland, often home to a visiting flock of Poll Dorset sheep or herd of beef cattle.
Bedrooms and wet room
These are accessed via a hallway leading off the kitchen/sitting room. There is a double bed room and a twin bed room. Both contain built-in wardrobes. The wardrobe in the twin bed room is fitted with a Yale laptop wide safe. All beds are made from solid light oak with firm ortho mattresses. Pillows are available in natural down or fibre fill. Each bedroom contains a wall mounted 32 inch flat screen TV with Freeview. The back door at the end of the hallway leads out to a sandstone paved south facing patio equipped with cast metal bistro table and chairs. This overlooks a small private lawn and one of the apple orchards which is home to our friendly hens and, during the day, to Poppy the micro-pig. It provides an ideal spot for a secluded early morning coffee and croissant.
The wet room is wheelchair friendly and includes lavatory, wall mounted shower and easy rise shower chair as well as a washbasin with easy turn lever mixer tap.
