Pricing From: £345.00 - 395.00

This property sleeps 2 including infants. 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 four remaining prize winning pedigree Shetland sheep, and chicken, ducks, and cat can be found in the yard.

Tucked into the corner of the grassy courtyard is The Old Granary, which has been inspected and graded 4* by the A.A. This perfectly delightful tiny cottage is a treat for two (no more than two!), either a bolt hole for Mum and Dad, a base for keen walkers and bird watchers, or indeed a cosy nest for the romantically inclined! The cottage is attached to an old barn on one side, and provides upside-down accommodation with the living room upstairs.

The flooring is antique maple with rugs, under-floor central heating, and is stylishly furnished and decorated in rustic natural colours. To the left of the front door is a grassy patio area with wooden table and chairs, surrounded by a trellis and bed of pretty flowering shrubs and roses. As you enter The Old Granary you come into the bedroom, with the comfy double bed directly ahead covered with pillows of gold, green and rustic red.

To the right the tiled wet room has a beautiful marble and mosaic border. Tucked under the stairs is a wall-hung toilet, and in the corner a contemporary basin on a marble stand. The curved wall creates ample space for the shower.

Up the winding handcrafted staircase is a well equipped kitchen with oven, gas hob and grill, washer/drier and fridge, and an intimate dining area. In the far corner is a cosy sofa for two, with T.V.

and DVD. From the window there are lovely views of our fields, our pedigree Shetland sheep and the peaceful valley of the River Gara. For evening eating there is a fine selection of local pubs, all with a well earned reputation for good cooking, and James and Rosie would be happy to advise you.

We regret that dogs are not allowed in The Old Granary.
