WELCOME TO

Upper Cooperage

Situated at the western end of the Gunpowder House, the light, airy, Cooperage Apartments afford views over the Paddock and to the hills beyond.

Cottage Features

Upper Cooperage is accessed via an outside staircase and full width balcony with outdoor seating. The front door opens from the balcony into a large hallway with rooms leading off into the large sitting room enjoying fabulous views over the village (equipped with wood-burning stove, two single sofa beds for occasional guests, CTV, DVD), open plan kitchen/dining area (with oven, hob, fridge with ice-box, microwave & dishwasher). The opposite side of the hallways leads to a bathroom (with bath, over bath electric shower, w.c. and wash-hand basin), a double bedroom with en-suite shower room and a spacious twin bedroom (with French doors opening onto a small balcony).

Car parking is in the area to the left side of the gable end, under the grassy bank.
