Balcony Bedroom

The beds, windows, armchairs and balcony doors are reflected in full height mirrors in this view of the bedroom.This is our most popular bedroom, probably because it is the most spacious, being seven by four metres. The long wall at the bottom of the twin beds is mirrored and two of the doors open to reveal the TV, Video, DVD and CD player. By the window, another door hides part of your wardrobe space.

The bed linen is ivory white to match the décor.  The furniture looks like maple.The twin beds are pushed together, but they have individual fitted sheets, because the head and foot of the beds are electronically height adjustable.

The sun is streaming in through the pair of balcony doors onto the light ginger-coloured carpet that is fitted throughout upstairs.The goose down or 'synthetic' quilt can be large enough for a six-foot-wide bed or you can have a pair of single ones. We can, at your request, make up the mattresses as a super-king, but you would not be able to adjust them any more. We have a portable ioniser and air filter for this room.


The south-facing balcony has a waist-high balustrade and a wooden floor to match the decking below it.The south-facing balcony has a pair of bench seats waiting for you if you want to move away from the comfortable armchairs. The fitted unit near the doors is also for guests to use, along with the drawers in the bedside cabinets, which also have a pull out glass shelf.

From the balcony you can look over the main garden, the surrounding farmland and the set-aside field, and our wild garden across the stream.

Just below the balustrade is the kitchen decking, leading to a reclaimed brick pavement that joins to a path made from the old quarry tiles that formed the cottage flooring when we bought it in 1972. This path is beside a water feature with constantly trickling water as it takes you to York stone steps and the kitchen gate onto our track. At night this area is lit up.
