A Bothy, traditionally found on the hillsides of Scotland is a ‘place of rest for weary travellers’ and this property will certainly provide a great base for you to explore the local area.

This Bothy was once an ancient fruit barn and has been lovingly rebuilt by the owner /occupiers of Snape Hall, the sixteenth century farmhouse which hosts both The Bothy and The Nookery in its grounds.

Be welcomed into a charming open-plan living area where the whole length of the old barn is comprised of glass windows with double doors leading on to a small patio where you can dine and watch the sun set over the paddocks.

The light filled space with wooden floors stretching throughout is stylishly designed with a wood burning stove enhancing the countryside feel.

The kitchen is framed with original wooden beams and there is a dining table for two where you can enjoy a romantic dinner.

One King size bedroom with an ensuite shower room welcomes you to cosy up for the night.
