Upcott Farm

The Calfshed

20120601 140.jpg

Originally built to house the farm's cows and calves, The Calfshed has been lovingly converted into a luxury holiday home - perfect for couples and families, or larger groups (hired together with the Lambshed), looking for complete comfort and tranquility.


The cottage boasts a large light kitchen dining and living area. The four stunning original arches have floor-to-ceiling french doors and views on to the beautiful private courtyard. The Calfshed  retains much of its traditional character with large oak beams and solid polished concrete flooring.   With a linen corner sofa and antique furniture this is a great place to unwind.  There is a wood burning stove and logs provided in the log store adjacent to the property.  The cottage has Freesat television and Blue-Ray DVD player.  The whole property is fully Wi-Fi enabled (though not super fast) so you can keep in touch with the outside world if you need too.


A large farmhouse style kitchen with oak work surfaces, a butler sink and all the appliances.  The french doors lead out to the courtyard terrace which is perfectly suited for eating outdoors (should weather permit).  All kitchen basics and laundry products are provided for use during your stay.  A separate utility area is next to the kitchen where there is a washing machine and tumble dryer, a microwave and extra boot room space.


There are two en-suite bedrooms, each with a super-king sized bed. One of the rooms can be made up as a twin as they house zip-and-link beds.  Each of the bedrooms are a calm palate of Farrow & Ball grey, plump pillows, cushions and duvets in white cotton from the White Company and linen curtains and blinds.  Every care has been taken to ensure the rooms are comfortable and calm for a restful nights sleep.  Both bedrooms have roof-lights with blackout blinds available.


Both of the bedrooms are en-suite. The master bedroom has a shower room and the twin (double) bedroom has a bath with shower over.  Bramley hand soap and moisturiser are provided for use during your stay. 


The Calfshed has a beautiful private courtyard with a large solid wood table and benches seating up to 10.  The courtyard can also be shared with the Lambshed if both cottages are booked together by one large group.  The Calfshed also has use of the large orchard and lawned area with a pond and stream.  A trampoline is also available for use.
