"The Old Farmhouse" provides cottage-style self contained accommodation. The entrance is from the terrace on the east side of the house, into the living room, with original oak beams, shutters and an open fireplace with coal effect gas fire. Views from the windows are of the walled garden and the fields beyond. On summer evenings the door to the terrace can be left open, but in the winter, after dark, great pleasure can be had from shutting the door and shutters and experiencing the protection from the elements for which these old Pennine farmhouses are renowned.
A dining table and six chairs, a sideboard and chest of drawers, together with a two-seater sofa, three easy chairs and a wooden backed settee, all fit easily into the large family room. A heated Hostess trolley adds to the facilities in the kitchen. In addition to the colour television there are games and books to entertain those who just wish to relax.
A fitted kitchen makes self-catering easy. The part-panelled room also has a shuttered window and overlooks the walled garden; visitors enjoy taking breakfast using the window-seat, folding table and chairs.
Upstairs there are two double bedrooms. The larger room has an en-suite bathroom with shower over the bath, washbasin & w.c. & electric shaver point. This room has twin beds which can be zipped and linked to make a super king-size bed, if desired. There is also ample room for one or two cots or folding beds. The other bedroom has a king-size bed and has access to a separate shower room with washbasin & w.c. & electric shaver point.
