Whitewashed romantic barn conversion with pretty garden and hot tub
Granny McPhee's Cottage, Chilla is a delightfully rural whitewashed cottage for two. This rural escape has a cosy sitting room with L-shaped sofa for cuddling close beneath the gnarled beams, basking in the heat from the logburner. There's a modern grey kitchen for creating romantic meals best enjoyed by candlelight at the table or al fresco in the private garden. Beneath the roof trusses there's a spacious super- kingsize bedroom with TV and chandelier and a luxury bathroom with walk-in shower and slipper bath. Bring your bikes or body boards – there's ample parking and a store.
The sunny flower-filled garden is a delightful space for relaxing on loungers or sharing a bottle of prosecco and tasty artisan cheese and meats. There's even a bubbling hot tub.
