Enter into a large hallway and kick off your shoes to enjoy toasty underfloor heating. Then onto a generous open plan living space which has clearly been designed for socialising. The kitchen, with stylish units and a large island seating area, will inspire lengthy, relaxed breakfasts and endless dinners where guests can feast and the wine flows until the early hours. The dining table by the large windows allows diners views towards the surrounding woods and fields, and the kitchen is well appointed. With it being open plan, the cook never needs to miss a moment of the fun. After dinner, retire to the comfy living area which has the most amazing large patio doors to look out from. You don’t even need to move to shut the large blinds - just pick up the remote to close them! Choose from one of the two en-suite bedrooms, both beautifully furnished and with crisp linens. Outside you will find huge patio area with seating looking over the wonderful countryside.
The property is located one mile from the village of Whittington which has a supermarket, pharmacy, newsagent, Chinese take-away, hairdresser, two village pubs and the beautiful church of St Giles originally built in the 13th century. It is a thriving village with monthly village markets and regular community events throughout the year.
A wonderful array of amenities and a selection of charming walks can be enjoyed straight from the front door. A short drive away is the lovely market towns of Lichfield and Ashbourne. Lichfield retains its original character with a beautiful cathedral, Samuel Johnson’s home, a centre dedicated to Erasmus Darwin, St Mary’s Centre (where the Staffordshire Millennium Tapestries are on permanent display) and wonderful places to stop and enjoy some food. The market town of Ashbourne is worth visiting, with its original cobbled lanes, old market stalls and grand Georgian buildings which are home to a good selection of restaurants, interesting shops and traditional coaching inns. Why not visit nearby Burton-upon-Trent? Here you can enjoy a fascinating day discovering the art of brewing beer, whilst the National Memorial Arboretum is just a short drive away. The peace of the Peak District, with its maze of footpaths and cycle routes, is within easy reach, as well as the magnificent Cannock Chase. Both of these are Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, offering walking, cycling and horse riding.
The National Trust Dovedale Valley is a wonderful place to visit; a renowned beauty spot, it offers excellent walking and cycling amidst spectacular scenery. A short drive away is Tamworth Castle, the ancient capital of Mercia. Take time to visit one of the local historic estates including Chatsworth House, Shugborough Hall, Kedleston Hall and nearby Sudbury Hall. Thrillseekers can enjoy fabulous Alton Towers Theme Park, a day out for all the family. This really is a special place to stay.
