The ground floor

Entering the cottage from the original cobbled courtyard under the archway, there is a doorway between the two sets of carriage doors into Malbanc Cottage. You will step into the hallway/boot room, complete with original bridle hooks and bench for leaving outdoor gear after walks around the estate! There is a small downstairs loo and cleverly hidden cupboard with a washing machine and dryer.

The large, dramatic sitting room with its original beams has two seating areas, with comfortable sofas and chairs, a wood-burning stove and impressive gothic doors leading into the dining room. Decorated in shades of yellow, cream and grey, with striking floral printed linen on the curtains, it is sophisticated and elegant. Large picture windows looking onto both the garden and the courtyard give it a light and joyous feel.

The flat screen TV above the fireplace ensures easy viewing. The dining room is understated but powerful, with its high ceilings, original beams and large windows. Striped curtains echoing the sitting room and fabric covered gothic chairs complete the look. The dining room table, set for 8, can be extended to seat up to 16 persons, offering the perfect answer to a group booking when two other cottages are rented together.

Through the Gothic arch in the dining room sits a Gothic dresser, on the right of which is a fabulous kitchen, specifically designed for larger groups up to 16. Integrated appliances, double ovens, large fridges and separate freezer mean enough storage to feed the maximum number.

The door from the dining room leads out into a private garden area, with outdoor furniture and colourful flower beds. It is really the front door, leading from the parking area, down the gravel path.

“A stunning cottage with everything you could wish for, a peaceful stay in simply beautiful surroundings”

The first floor

Up the stairs leading from the sitting room there are two bedrooms, a double and a twin (which can be linked to create a double). These bedrooms share a large bathroom with separate shower. Designed and decorated to the highest standard, the bathroom has a large mirror and is fully tiled with heated towel rail.

The double bedroom features the original beams, and is decorated in subtle tones highlighted in mauve and purple. Antique oak furniture compliments the contemporary bed treatment.

The twin bedroom is decorated in soft tones with a pretty floral pattern set on beige linen. Set against a headboard designed with a shelf to place personal belongings, the beds can be linked to make a king size double. The built-in cupboard and dressing table/desk in weathered oak complete the room.

Up the winding second staircase, you enter a warm and cosy twin bedroom, with tongue and groove headboard, hanging cupboard and desk/dressing table with drawers. Set in the eaves of the cottage with huge glass windows looking across the dining room, it is decorated in pretty blues and cream. A dormer window looks out onto the garden below. The attached shower room is quirky and original, with beams, tiling and heated
towel rail.
