- The Farmhouse at Polehanger is entirely unique. ‘It does what it says on the tin’ and packs a serious punch as a large six bedroom, luxury farmhouse set in immaculate grounds. A vast amount of the original farmhouse character has been preserved but it is now subtly mixed with modern and high-end furniture, fixtures and fittings and some wonderful wallpapers. The owners have created a luxurious finish to enable you to have the best possible stay. As you enter the property you’ll step up into the grand, high ceilinged hallway where you will be immediately struck by the size of The Farmhouse. Immediately to your left you will find the immaculate farmhouse kitchen, this has all the luxuries you’ll need to make your stay awesome! If you fancy cooking up a real feast then don’t forget, there are two kitchens here! The large living room is comfortably furnished and here you will benefit from the huge fireplace and wood burner. A snug has been created at the opposite end where you will again find comfortable seating but also a large Smart TV. There’s a large and ornate formal dining room which features plenty of seating. Through to the adjoining cottage and downstairs you’ll find a second living area which benefits from having additional sofa seating, a Smart TV and a smaller table and chairs. You will also find the kitchen and downstairs bathroom located here.
Onwards and upwards to the luxurious and comfortable bedrooms. Large comfortable beds and fine quality linens will ensure that you have a great night’s sleep. Why not take your morning coffee outside to the wonderful garden and treat yourself to some peace and quiet whilst planning your adventurous day ahead? Being rural and located in the countryside means you’ll get a real view of the night sky, but you’re close enough to the local villages where you’ll find all your amenities, including supermarkets, a pharmacy and a couple of takeaways and restaurants. You will also find some very good pubs within a short drive of The Farmhouse so you won’t be disappointed. The layout is of such that there are four bedrooms, a dining room, kitchen and two living spaces in the Farmhouse, with an adjoining cottage with a kitchen, downstairs bathroom, living room and two bedrooms.
