The Old Farmhouse
A detached eighteenth century farmhouse with lots of character and original features. Farm Cottage is the largest of our cottage rentals and is popular with families coming with grandparents and children. It’s a detached four-bedroomed property created when the original farmhouse and a stable, both dating back to the 1700s, were knocked into one. The cottage has loads of character and retains many of its original features including sloping walls, uneven stairs, inglenook fireplaces and low oak beams. See if you can spot the slate where someone nearly two hundred years ago scratched the date 1827.
What our guests say about The Old Farmhouse:
The farmhouse is perfect! Everything we needed was provided and was exactly what we’d hoped for. We loved the log burner which made the whole cottage feel so cosy when the nights were chilly. The Rivermead site is like a little bit of heaven and the Welcome Pack was fab!

To the right of the front hall is the first of the bedrooms with a king-size bed. It’s a large, bright room with new carpet, bed and furniture plus original beams and an open inglenook fireplace discovered in 2021 and restored as a beautiful feature. There’s ample storage with a hanging rail, chest of drawers, dressing table and bedside tables. Through this bedroom is a second small hallway leading to a ground floor shower room with a shower cubicle, toilet, wash basin, chair, and plenty of hanging space for towels. The ground floor bedroom and shower room are perfect for anyone who prefers accommodation on one level.
