The Manger was once a stable. Its original stalls, hay rack, troughs and loft have been retained while modern amenities, such as oil central heating, have been gently added. The terrace offers uninterrupted views down to the river.

Overview

Property

Updated: 03-Dec-2016
Kitchen/dining area, lounge, double bedroom and bathroom.

The Manger was once a stable. Its original stalls, hay rack, troughs and loft have been retained and the necessary modern additions to create a luxury holiday cottage have been gently inserted. There are lime-washed walls and gentle lighting, along with the loft stair which allows an open aspect through to the apex of the roof. The terrace offers uninterrupted views down to the river and stretching several miles along and across the spectacular Yarty River valley with its pattern of small irregular fields and copses.

Enveloped by accessible woodlands, apple orchards and farm fields, The Manger lies at the end of a long, shared drive, amidst hedge-lined winding lanes. Badgers, deer, rabbits, (40 species of moth were counted on a June evening) and various birds of prey are commonly seen. A weir pool with a salmon ladder lies along one of the many footpaths nearby and a bluebell wood is a short walk away.

The Shippen sleeping four guests is also available to book at this location.
