The Artist's Studio sits on a hillside surrounded by fields and woodland in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at the end of a rural lane. Panoramic windows and the south facing balcony give uninterrupted views across the beautiful valley. The private lower terrace is a sheltered sun trap that also looks out over the lawn to the valley below, the perfect place to relax and unwind. An abundance of wildlife including deer and badger frequent the garden and fields below, and the local area is excellent for bird watching and walking.
Originally a farm building, the property was converted into an artist's studio twenty three years ago. In 2015, the property was extensively refurbished by interior designer Susie Stocks to create stunning and luxurious accommodation for two. With central heating and a wood burning stove, this relaxing cosy retreat can be enjoyed year round.
The local village of Wilmington is 2 miles away and has a popular pub and hotel, both serving meals.
