Originally a building for the storage of wagons, The Wainhouse has been carefully converted to provide a secluded sanctuary for two people. At least fifty metres away from the other properties, it is a haven set by itself with its own parking.
The large bedroom overlooks the walled terrace through one of three beautiful arched windows and includes an antique mahogany press amongst its furnishings.
The living area also overlooks the south- facing terrace through the second and third archways so that the room is always light.
The kitchen is well equipped and includes a microwave, fridge-freezer and dishwasher plus washer-dryer.
A shrub border with lilac, mahonia, rose and other plants acts as a screen between the parking outside the front door and the rest of the property. A birdfeeder, hung in this area outside the kitchen window, provides guests with endless entertainment.
The walled terrace is stone-flagged and has climbers growing up and around a wall-mounted water feature and a pergola which gives shade in one corner of the area. There is a vine, passion flower, pyracantha and winter-flowering clematis with white wisteria and honeysuckle near the front door.
Beyond the terrace is a grassy area with a crab apple tree surrounded by other plants.
