Peek Inside Crookwath Cottage
A traditional cottage packed full of character
The drive to Crookwath Cottage from the main road is stunning: narrow, twisty and with wide sensational views at every turn. You are in the quietest of valleys and 1,200 feet above sea level. The cottage, like any well-loved family home, is crammed with original art, photographs, books, games, open fires and much else to excite young and old.
The kitchen is big, beamed and Aga-simmered, with wooden cupboards and plenty of all you need. A squishy sofa at one end next to an overflowing bookcase ensures whoever cooks will have company. The original range is now a wood burner in the long sitting room with contemporary sofa and dark red walls. You’ll find the kitchen fitted with all mod cons including a fridge freezer, washing machine, electric cooker and microwave.
Eat and Relax
The cottage boasts a large traditional sitting room with exposed timber ceiling, dark red walls and wood burner set in the original range. There is a dining area at the far end. The sitting room and dining area dates back to the 17th century, oozing character, charm and warmth. The traditional range was used until the 1950’s for cooking, boiling the water and heating the bread oven.
The freshly painted bedrooms have lots of paintings from the resident artist – your host Gina Farncombe!. The views from each room are simply stunning.
