Skippers Rest


Home Description

Skippers Rest has a charm and character all of it's own and it is easy to see that the owners have lavished much time, thought and expense to present the cottage in such an endearing and comfortable manner.   As you arrive and open the stable door you can't help but feel at home as you enter the welcoming large lounge diner with views over the boatyard to the river. This spacious room features a large dining table looking out on the river along with plenty of lounge seating arranged around the impressive wood burner, perfect for relaxing during the cooler months.

Wherever you look, you will see how much thought has gone into the planning of the decor. At the rear of the lounge you step into the compact and well equiped kitchen which looks out onto the patio / barbecue area, accesed via a door from the lounge, here you will find the outside utility room housing the washing machine, tumble dryer and fridge/freezer.

Take the stairs to the first floor to find the main accommodation and a particularly pleasing bathroom with bath, shower, wc and handbasin. On this floor there are two double bedrooms one with delightful views over the harbour with a window seat where you can while away a few hours with ease. Bedroom 2 is bright and airy, looking out to the patio, the third room on the floor is just made for children.  Fitted with bunk beds you can easily see how a young mind could transport itself into thinking it to be a sailing ship, so close to the river are you!  This room has a stair gate fitted for the safety of younger members of the family.

Assend the stairs to the 2nd floor to see where the magic really starts to happen, this spacious double bedroom is very much a room with a view.  Whilst the modern en suite bathroom with walk in shower, wc and handbasin, the raised table and picture window looking over the river will make leaving the room a force of will.

The patio area to the back of the property is a large area which is a sun trap enjoying some late evening sun, so perfect for alfresco dining.

Skippers Rest is a large family cottage sleeping  8 over three floors and is accessed along the very gentle rise of East Street a  few minutes from the heart of the village. Views over the river are a major feature of the property and the busy boatyard means that there is always something of interest to see.  Bed linen and towels are included   - pets on request.   -  SAT - SAT although can be flexible out of season.
