With amazing views from every room, this large, contemporary property is ideal for families and friends who want to explore nature, the coast or enjoy the many local attractions close to Rosedale. A former farm dating from 1750, this holiday property has been completely renovated to offer contemporary facilities whilst retaining many original features. It is steeped in the ironstone mining history of Rosedale, and in the 1860’s was home to the Sheriff’s Pit farrier and blacksmith. Completely restored by the present owner to offer good quality, contemporary facilities whilst retaining many of its original features, this stunning home boasts breathtaking views from every window. It is semi-detached from the owner’s property at the back and accessed by a farm track. The kitchen and breakfast area with underfloor heating leads to a spacious dining room with French doors opening onto the terrace and garden. A bright, airy living room with a multi-fuel burner provides a cosy room for guests to congregate after a day exploring the many footpaths and cycle tracks on the doorstep. The first floor provides a master bedroom with a 6ft zip and link bed, a double room plus a large, well-appointed family bathroom and separate shower room. The second floor family suite provides a twin room accessed via a double bedroom with 6ft zip and link bed with sitting area.

    I don't like to be negative and the house is in a fabulous location with stunning views from every window, but the big drawback is the lane which is more like a farm track and is not really suitable for small cars or sporty cars, just 4*4's. 3 out of the 4 cars we went in were scrapped underneath because, due to the camper on the road, you couldn't avoid scrapping your car. The beds are great as you can have them as singles or doubles but the bedrooms upstairs are really like one room as you have to go through one room to get to the other. Also, I think you need a larger fridge, maybe replace the freezer with a combination fridge freezer as the freezer gets hardly any use. This sounds a bit negative but we had a great time and the scenery is breath-taking.

    Lovely secluded location if you wish to get completely away from everything, just remember to get your shopping while you are out as you will not wish to trek back to the shops if you forget something. Views are beautiful. Plenty of space. The drive up to the cottage is a bit bumpy so take it slow.
