Once two cottages and now one wonderful, friendly house, Beechwood keeps almost all of its original character and feel but with more up to date facilities such as hot and cold water, central heating and electricity! Our water comes from our very own well, so there are no chemicals in it at all so it tastes lovely and it's so soft you don't need so much soap either!
Inside downstairs some walls have been cleaned to show the bare granite including the huge lintels over the fireplaces. We have wood burners in the lounge and dining room, much appreciated by those who have gone out for a walk on days with excessive "damp" in the air!
In the higher and newer section of the house are rooms 1 and 2 and their bathroom and, downstairs, the kitchen and utility. In the middle are rooms 3 and 4 with their en suite facilities and reception and the dining room below. In the lower section, the guest lounge and our private lounge are downstairs and room 5 and our bedroom are above.
All of the rooms in Beechwood are decorated to maintain a simple cottage feel. The construction of the building is plain to see downstairs and the four fireplaces are possibly it's most outstanding features. The sun room extension on the west side is a lovely place to sit and watch the most wonderful sunsets over Higher White Tor.
Including the garden and meadows Beechwood has nearly 6 acres of land where guests are free to roam and enjoy. Photographers and naturalists simply love the hay meadows from May to August when the orchids and other flowers are out.
