Place Farm House at Bardwell

The wonderful open plan kitchen/living/dining space is sure to be at the heart of your holiday with its contemporary and well equipped bespoke kitchen, complete with four oven AGA, leading through a feature wall into the lovely large dining and living space, with massive fireplace housing a wood burner. The ground floor continues round to the large but cosy family sitting room, through the utility room and back to the kitchen past the chic bathroom. Little guests won’t take long to discover the fun filled play-room, where a secret door opens onto one of the staircases. All three beautiful bedrooms, a further two bathrooms and cloakroom are equally stylish with a calm feel created with cream earth tones.

Place Farm House is a detached holiday home sitting in 0.75 acres of land with a drive and ample parking for four cars. The garden wraps around the house with a gate through to a west facing brick terrace at the back where you can enjoy meals in the evening sun. There’s a fun climbing frame for little guests who must be supervised. A bridle path to the side of the house offers lovely nature walks along the river Blackbourne.

Ground Floor
Guests enter the spacious open plan kitchen/dining/living space with the playroom, rear hall (bags of space for coats and boots) utility room and bathroom to the right. The room wraps round to stairs to the first floor and front door to the garden, next to a door opening into the sitting room. Continue round, through the ante-room (with steps up and down) to the utility room, rear hall with another door to the garden and back into the kitchen. Slate tiles run through the kitchen and passage through to the utility and rear hall and bathroom, changing to seagrass through the rest of the ground floor and stairs, other than the playroom with carpet.

Open Plan Kitchen/Living Space
This wonderfully sociable area combines a contemporary hand made Shaker style kitchen with the beautiful beamed dining and living area.

The chef in the family is sure to enjoy preparing meals on the massive Aga with four ovens, two hot plates and a warming plate, with a two ring induction hob and electric oven for ‘overspill’. The central island gives ample space for food prep, with built-in six-shelf fridge and three drawer freezers.

Whether your having a simple breakfast of lavish dinner, the long table with five chairs and a bench is perfect, with the wood burner set into the brick fireplace to keep you warm in the cooler months. A Victorian Chesterfield sofa invites you to relax with an eclectic mix of art and interiors books for you to browse.

Sitting Room
Ooozing farmhouse style with beams in the ceiling, handsome Inglenook fireplace with wood burner, original windows and seagrass flooring. Relax in-front of the telly in two large sofas with footstool and yet more books stacked on the occasional tables and bookcase.

Utility Room

Bathroom
The claw foot roll top bath with Fired Earth taps and hand shower steals the limelight here, with wash-basin, WC, heated towel rail, and natural light from the window overlooking the garden.

Playroom
Safely lose your children in this magical room with gigantic blackboard, kids table and benches, cute dolls house, mini kitchen, train tracks, lego and drawers heaving with toys and games primarily for under 10-year-olds. If you’re allowed to ‘visit’ there’s a large sofa and a door opens onto the second staircase.

First Floor
Two staircases take you to the first floor; one wide but steep staircase (with banister 2/3 of the way) from the main living space, the other carpeted and through a door in the playroom onto the landing by the double room. As you’d anticipate in a period holiday house, the floors are uneven with the odd step up and down so take care. The landing wraps around past the double and bathroom, through the master suite to the second staircase running down to the living space. The twin room and en suite cloakroom are beyond.

Master Bedroom
What a treat to spend the night in such a gorgeous big bedroom with beamed ceiling and soft cream palette . The king size wooden bed takes pride of place between bedside tables and windows to the front and the side, with the church tower in the distance. Read the morning paper in one of the Bergere style chairs, unpack your clothes into the antique wardrobe or mahogany chest of drawers and make yourselves at home!

En Suite Bathroom
A deep step takes you into this large luxury bathroom with a super long bath, separate shower cubicle with rain shower, WC, washbasin, heated towel rail, and natural light.

Guest Bedroom
Exceptionally large and sunny bedroom with zip and link beds so you can choose to have them split into two singles on either side of the window overlooking the garden, or a super king bed against the wall. A French style bookcase has plenty of bedtime stories to choose from for the children and there are three occasional chairs and a chest of drawers.

En-Suite Cloakroom
A WC and wash-basin mean you don’t have to disturb friends and family in the middle of the night.

Double Bedroom
Charming bedroom with heavy toile patterned curtains framing the window overlooking the drive, and field beyond where you may see sheep or cows. The bed is a double with a bedside tray table with lamp, large chest of drawers, and a free-standing wardrobe.

Bathroom
Conveniently located next to the double, this room also has a bath with Victorian style fittings, wash-basin, WC and bags of light streaming in through the window.

Outside
