Flossy Brook - Accommodation
Flossy Brook is a wonderful place to stay when all you want is a world of your own where you can unwind, slow down and savour those moments of luxury togetherness. Your worries will just drift away the minute you arrive because right here is everything you need for happy days and restful nights. This timber-clad lodge has the perfect blend of modern convenience and homeliness, along with heaps of space and a very gentle ambience. The open plan living space has warm wood flooring with underfloor heating, and is flooded with natural light from the floor to ceiling windows that give an outlook over the patio to the countryside beyond.
Park up, get out and have a stretch, then go in through the door to the hallway where you can play table football; off to the left is the kitchen where warm wood and sage green units give a lovely country feel. It’s all very well-equipped with room to sit and chat whilst you create all kinds of culinary delights; if you’re here for a family celebration book one of our tried and tested private caterers (see Extras) to come in and create a very special feast for that special birthday or anniversary. Beyond the kitchen is one of two staircases at Flossy Brook, and the open-plan living/dining room where a big dining table comfortably seats 14; gather round for a leisurely breakfast of local eggs and bacon, for big hearty roast dinners and scrumptious suppers. Throw open the full height doors when it’s warm, spill out onto the patio for cocktails and canapes.
At the other end of the room big fat sofas beckon you to put your feet up and take your ease; snuggle up and watch a movie with bowls brimming with popcorn to share. Imagine coming back from a walk in the fields to the warmth of the wood-burner, all cosy together with thick socks and chunky jumpers on, hands around a steaming mug of hot chocolate, trays of hot, buttery toast...
Also off the hall, right next to the kitchen, is Bedroom 1, which has an ensuite wet room. All the beds at Flossy Brook are zip and link so you can have them arranged as super kings or twins; just let us know how you want them and we’ll do the rest. Go upstairs from the living room and you’ll find a mezzanine landing where there’s a day bed that can be adapted to provide 2 extra beds; these can be booked for a small additional charge per person. Right of the landing is Bedroom 2 which has an ensuite bathroom with a bath and overhead shower. Bedroom 3 is left of the landing; right next to it there’s a bathroom that also has a bath and overhead shower.
Bedrooms 4 and 5 are reached from the other staircase in the hall; these two rooms share a bathroom with a bath and an overhead shower, so it’s almost like a separate suite at this end of the house. Bedroom 5 is a great room for a family as it has a day bed that can be configured as two singles at no extra charge. The bedrooms are all finished in calming neutral tones with splashes of colour and original artworks; coupled with the fresh country air it’s all conducive to a good night’s sleep.
Back in the hallway, off to the right is the crowning feature at Flossy Brook - the indoor swimming pool. You’ll have hours of fun in here - there's room around the side for loungers, and floor to ceiling windows look out onto the patio and garden. The patio is south facing so it's quite a suntrap; take your morning coffee out there, fire up the barbecue and get steaks from local butchers sizzling, make the most of the good weather and have drinks at sunset. The kids will be happy running about on the grass and clambering about in the play area; nature lovers will love the wildlife area where butterflies and bees mingle among the flowers and dragonflies skim over the pond (this is fenced for safety, but young children should always be supervised of course). Happy carefree holidays are all yours at Flossy Brook - just how it should be. Book today!
