Description

Crafers is a most imposing village residence in which you'll be totally transported into a world of 'wow'. Expect head turns at every corner as you take in and marvel at this impressive property. Packed to the rafters with antiques and vintage statement pieces, this early 18th century house has been totally transformed to provide one-of-a-kind self-catering holiday accommodation for up to 8 people. 

Formerly the home of the owner, everything is here that you could possibly need. With off-the-wall interiors, Crafers marries both high end interior design with quality home comforts. For instance, the kitchen/diner is the hub of the home. Complete with island breakfast bar and woodburning stove - you can sit here in all seasons and always feel content, ideal for family gatherings as well as formal entertaining. Large sash windows look out to the fully enclosed, beautiful rear garden - a frequent home to birdlife and ever-changing borders. 

A grand staircase, which splits at the landing, leads to both the first and second floors. The master bedroom boasts commanding views over the garden and comes complete with en-suite shower room. The Drawing Room too will certainly not disappoint. Looking out over the market square, two large settees centre around an open fireplace, which really adds a grand air to this open space. At the other end of the hall, the Entertainment Lounge is ideal for teens or 'big kids' wanting to chill out and watch a movie/listen to music. It comes complete with a surround sound system! Up in the attic you'll also find a games room with children's library - ideal should the weather be inclement. 

If you can't already picture yourself here, Crafers truly is a year-round house. Whether you're dreaming of summer barbecues in a private garden, or merely long winter evenings spent with a jigsaw in front of the fire, Crafers truly has all the ingredients for a truly magical holiday for all ages.
