CLEAN, COSY AND COMFORTABLE!


Ryecroft Cottage is at least 200 years old.
You'll find some fascinating historical information about it 

in the comprehensive Information File inside the cottage.
It's built in the traditional Northumbrian style,
with thick stone walls, a slate roof
and all one one floor - ideal if you don't like stairs.
The cottage was completely renovated and refurbished to a high standard in 2002


We are lucky to have an excellent cleaner,
who always makes sure the cottage is sparkling clean and fresh for our guests.



THE SPACIOUS LIVING ROOM

Faces south with views over the garden and onto the hills.
There's a sofa with lots of cushions,
two rocking armchairs,
a wooden dining table and chairs.

The centre piece is the open log fire - with a FREE supply of logs!
(But don't worry if lighting a fire doesn't appeal to you.
Ryecroft Cottage also has full oil-fired central heating, included in the price)



The TV has a DVD + CD player.


The Living Room looks out onto a bird table giving close-up view of
woodpeckers, many kinds of tits and finches, nuthatch etc.
We provide nuts for the feeders and a field guide,
to be sure you can identify all your feathered visitors.





THE PRACTICAL, ATTRACTIVE KITCHEN

is nicely fitted out with cottage-style pine units.
The back door opens onto the completely enclosed garden,
so it's only a few steps to carry your meal out to the picnic table on fine days.
The kitchen has plenty of cupboard space and work surface.
It's fully equipped with
electric cooker,
fridge with freezer compartment,
dishwasher, washing machine/ tumble dryer,and microwave.
We've chosen high quality appliances - Miele and Bosch -
to be sure they do their job for you.
There's plenty of cooking equipment, attractive crockery and cutlery.
In case your holiday in the countryside inspires you to be creative,
we even provide recipe books!
