RIVERSIDE COTTAGE is an award winning conversion of a former 18th century stable set in an enviable location overlooking the River Stiffkey, and the panoramic hills beyond. The cottage is ideally situated to explore the stunning North North Heritage Coast (AONB), and is located minutes from the Roman coastal path, famous bird-watching marshes and extensive beautiful unspoilt beaches under breathtaking skies...
This wonderful, atmospheric, and peaceful award-winning retreat, is owned by former multi-award winning Boutique B&B owners, and thus offers high-spec accommodation with luxurious boutique period style furnishings!
The cosy sitting-room is painted in heritage colours, and is filled with vintage/antique treasures, squashy leather sofas aside an inglenook (faux wood-burner) fireplace with original Bressemer beam. There is a large wall-mounted flat-screen Freeview TV with built-in DVD player radio/CD player.
A dramatic gothic cupboard is generously filled with a library of books, brochures, DVDs and CDs for the guests to enjoy!
This idyllic country-cottage lounge affords the most spectacular views to the rolling countryside and hills beyond. Birdlife, Barn owls, deers, cows, and an abundance of river life are a an integral part of the wild-natural setting of this most idyllic cottage.
French doors open onto an alfresco terrace leading onto a south-facing garden that meanders down to its own private sun-deck, set over the river and again affording outstanding uninterrupted panoramic views.
The well-equipped kitchen is located through an arch off the lounge.
On arrival fresh flowers, chocolates and good wine await guests with a home-from-home welcome card to the cottage.
