ACCOMMODATION:
The Old Steadings is a newly converted farm building, used for the past 100 years to house cattle and store feed. It is now a lovely family house, which can sleep 8 people comfortably. It is set around a central courtyard , with a south-west facing sheltered terrace, surrounded by beautiful countryside with uninterrupted views to the mountains.


On one side of the courtyard is a large modern kitchen/breakfast room leading onto a living room with open fireplace and a sunroom/dining room with wood burning stove. With windows from floor to ceiling, these rooms are light and bright and the views are spectacular. There's a utility room, a cloakroom and a drying area too.


 On the other two sides of the courtyard there are four double/twin bedrooms (one with extra sofa bed) with luxurious en-suite bathrooms and there's a hayloft above, converted into a large family playroom. With underfloor ground-sourced heating throughout, the house is constantly warm with plenty of hot water too. The house has its own mineral-rich spring water supply which comes straight off the hill (and is delicious).
