Old Art Studio Description


Everything about this house is warm. When you enter you are enveloped in the homely warmth emanating from the Aga. A wood burning stove sits in the opposite corner with a pile of logs ready for use, waiting in the heated airing cupboard are warmed luxurious towels. The beds look inviting and cosy, dressed in plump duvets covered with fine bed linens. Even the curtains at every window are double sided and promise warmth.

No detail has been overlooked to achieve an idyllic holiday home. The pretty country style kitchen with cream painted walls and slate work tops has all the equipment you could possibly need even including a bone china tea set in case you would like to have your own home made Devon cream tea under the covered terrace.

Antique and artfully painted furniture share the stylishly decorated rooms with colourful Turkish rugs and original paintings on the walls. Every space is a feast for the eyes; a coin wall that frames the wood burner, leather sofa and armchairs bursting with brightly covered cushions, hazel branches that carry sumptuous curtains, views from every window out to the lawn, meadows and woods beyond.
