Little Summerhill Cottages
Dilhorne, Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire
Little Summerhill Cottages are three converted barns situated off the beaten track at Dilhorne near Stoke on Trent.
Beech CottageBeech Cottage was the first of our barns to be converted and comprises a kitchen/dining area/lounge, spacious bathroom and double bedroom. It has been likened to the Tardis, as it is bigger inside than it looks!
All on one level and accessible to most wheelchairs with a portable ramp, it has underfloor heating and tiled floors throughout making it warm and cosy in the winter but cool in the summer. An electric stove provides instant heat or a warm glow if needed.
The kitchen is well equipped with electric oven, gas hob, extractor hood, fridge freezer, washer/dryer, microwave oven, toaster, iron and ironing board. There is sufficient crockery, cutlery and cooking utensils to allow for entertaining if you wish.
The butterfly dining table seats four comfortably but can be folded away for convenience.
The large, comfortable, leather corner seating unit has a chaise longue to relax on and watch the digital TV and DVD player. There is a selection of reading material, DVDís and games available for your enjoyment.
The double bedroom has its own thermostat so that the temperature can be controlled separately to the rest of the cottage. The spacious bathroom has an over the bath shower and heated towel rail.
All windows except the bathroom have views over open farmland and you may be lucky enough to see pheasant, lapwings, hawks, little owls, foxes or - very rarely - a buzzard.
Outside there is a patio area with table, chairs, umbrella and barbecue, lawns to front and side and a double bench to relax and enjoy the view or watch the walkers and horseriders passing by.
Chestnut CottageChestnut Cottage is the second of our barns to be converted and according to our guests, it definitely has the wow! factor.
All on one level, the ground floor comprises kitchen/dining area/lounge, spacious wetroom and double bedroom. There is underfloor heating and tiled floors throughout making it warm and cosy in the winter but cool in the summer. An electric wall mounted fire provides instant heat or a warm glow if needed and there are thermostats in each room so that different temperatures can be maintained in different rooms.
The modern, well equipped kitchen has an electric oven, ceramic hob, fridge, freezer, microwave oven, toaster, washing machine/dryer and perching stool if requested.
The comfy leather corner unit seats four easily, as does the butterfly table. The TV has Freeview and built-in DVD player and there is a wide selection of tourist information.
The double bedroom is accessible to wheelchairs and has a seat with fixed arms which can be placed where required. The TV has Freeview and DVD player.
The wetroom has a large shower area and a shower chair and toilet riser can be provided on request.
Upstairs the twin-bedded gallery bedroom also has two pull out guest beds, Chesterfield settees and its own seating area with TV, Freeview and DVD player. This makes the cottage particularly suitable for two couples holidaying together or a disabled person and carer who may want their own space. or independence. This room has a radiator so that temperature can be controlled separately.
Outside there is a patio area with table, chairs and umbrella and designated parking space 10 metres from the door. Access at present is via seven steps or a ramp which gives wheelchair access to both Chestnut and Oak Cottage.
