Mattress comfort is subjective – however we’ve been told by many that our mattresses are superbly comfortable and give an excellent night’s sleep!
The bathrooms and shower room…….there are two bathrooms and one shower-room plus a cloakroom downstairs with a shower.
The two bathrooms have massive cast-iron baths. The shower-room has a walk-in shower with powerful water pressure. All have have large bath sheets, bath towels, hand towels, flannels, bath and loo mats. There are fluffy bathrobes, slippers and lots of little extra bits and bobs of cotton wool pads/buds, tissues and so on.
Our gorgeous soap, body wash, shampoo & conditioner are chosen especially for Lower Buckton and are environmentally sound with pure, natural and organic ingredients including lavender, rosemary, sage and lemon balm – to reflect the summer scents of an English country garden.
In your room…….
All the rooms are quiet, with views across the fields to hills or over the rosy-pink, mellow brick former farm yard and have a comfortable chair or sofa for relaxing, reading & watching favourite films. There are eclectic collections of antique furniture, mirrors, pictures and prints. Lots of vintage fabrics, *feather-down quilts and pillows, cotton and linen sheets, in-room slippers, hairdryer (with good access to socket and mirror), books, current glossy magazines and local information. There are flowers from the garden, homemade biscuits, fresh fruit and chocolates.
Electric kettles, proper leaf teas, herbals and ground coffee too with china cups and saucers and proper tea-pots and cafetieres as well. Each room has a little mini-fridge for fresh milk and do remember to ask for jugs of Lower Buckton’s bright, ice-cold and clear spring-water straight from the ground. There are flat-screen DVD players/CD players (do bring your own films/CDs), DAB radios with iPod/iPhone docking & charging and free WiFi. (Just a cautionary note to say that Lower Buckton does not have access to television anywhere in the house.) If anyone has a sudden urge to start ironing, just say and an iron and board will be brought to your room.
*Please note: If you have an allergy to feathers, the quilts and pillows can be replaced with synthetic filled ones but please try and remember to let us know when you book. The beds are all made up with quilts so please tell us if you’d really prefer sheets and blankets when you book.
