Set in Eaton, this pretty detached cottage in the north west of England, converted from a barn and set next to the owner's farmhouse. Being in the north west, this property is in a great countryside location, but not too far from the livelier cities like Chester and Liverpool, so would be perfect for a group of friends who want to relax in nature, but indulge in an exciting day trip. A warming woodburning fire is the first thing your eyes will be drawn to on entering the property and stepping into the open-plan living space, with a sitting area for you to cosy up in and dining area for four to sit around and maybe play a card game following a long day sight-seeing. With underfloor heating throughout the ground floor, you won't worry if you've forgotten to pack your slippers in those winter months because you'll still be toasty warm. Wander into the kitchen to find a stylish double oven with a sleek induction hob with a small breakfast bar for two for those early risers who like to make every minute of the day count! Head on up the oak staircase to find the bedrooms - a king-size and a twin - both containing storage and featuring charming sloping ceilings, followed by the bathroom, containing a shower, basin and WC. The outside lends itself ample space for off-road parking for two cars, and the property has its own little courtyard with table and chairs to use on those delightful summer evenings. The village of Tarporley has lots to offer and has become a hub of activity with local businesses and shops prospering, as well as community events, like the annual Tarporley Carnival which sees a parade of villagers going up the High Street showcasing the best of the talents and creativity in the area. For a lovely day trip, head on over to Chester, the historical Roman-walled city, famed for its picture-perfect Eastgate Clock, and the beautiful River Dee, so hire a pedal boat or take a boat trip and see the scenery from the water. Whatever the reason for your trip, whether reuniting with old friends, or spending a romantic break with your partner, The Shippon will provide you with a homely base to explore the surrounding area.
Two bedrooms: 1 x king-size, 1 x twin. Bathroom with shower, basin and WC. Kitchen. Open-plan living and dining area with woodburning stove.
