Dalton Green Farmhouse is the jewel in the crown at Kirkwood Farm. The luxury accommodation of Real Farm Holidays.
Dalton Green Farmhouse has been decorated in a country style and furnished with a mix of antique and modern furniture, accentuating its luxurious specification and detailing.
Aiming at the top end of 5 star, every room is spacious and comfortable. Four bedrooms have superb super-king beds (which can be made up as twins) while the 5th bedroom is always a twin. Three bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and the remaining two bedrooms share a family bathroom, all of these are large (marble) bathrooms, most of which have both a shower and a (huge) bath. There are two sitting rooms and a large dining room in addition to an eating area in the huge kitchen which boasts a 4-oven AGA, an American style fridge/freezer, dishwasher, electric hob and oven, granite worktops and island with cafe seating. The living area at the opposite end of the kitchen (all open plan) has a wood burning stove, two large sofas and a large wall-mounted TV (with Sky) making it perfect for the informal gatherings.
Atmospheric lighting help set the mood for meals in the dining room where the table seats up to 14 people and 10 comfortably. A convenient ‘hatch’ links the utility room, giving easy access to a second dishwasher, washing facilities, tumble drier, second fridge freezer and storage cupboards.
The passage way leads through to the drawing room at the front of the house where guests can relax in front of a blazing fire (wood burner) and enjoy conversation, books, music, television, books, games or the internet (WiFi provided).
Upstairs the five individually decorated character bedrooms are complemented by stone floored bathrooms with some vintage enamel baths and walk-in marble showers. The oil-fired boiler system , with its secondary back up, will ensure that there is a constant supply of piping hot water.
Well behaved pets are welcome – please ask first (usually maximum of 2 dogs in the farmhouse) and only downstairs (not in sitting room) and off the carpets and furniture – and it is dog walking heaven around the farm. Open all year, it is a must for anyone who enjoys the countryside. Far more than just accommodation, it’s a real countryside experience.
The extensive garden combines a mix of lawn, borders, shrubs, fruit trees and lots of seasonal vegetables and herbs which are to be picked by occupants as part of the farmhouse experience. The garden is large enough to exercise dogs and for older children to play safely whilst exploring their surroundings.
Then the surrounding farm offers the most perfect unspoilt environment. 600 acres of rolling grass fields, beautiful woods, and the fantastic river, along with ponds, burns and rough land. Magical.
