what the studio offers

THE STUDIO is a secure free-standing cottage on an active small-holding farm adjacent to the Hilton College Estate. There is a landscaped garden enclosed by an electric fence for the use of the guests, and an organic vegetable garden from which guests can harvest lettuce, herbs and spinach for their meals. Guests are welcome to walk on the farm, so there is lots of room for children to expend their energy.

The living area has a fully-equipped open plan kitchen and dining room with a large yellowwood table, catering for sociable cooking and eating moments. The lounge, which is also open plan to the living area, has very comfy furniture surrounding a fireplace (wood supplied), with a smart TV (open WiFi) to one side. The living area spills through double doors onto a large patio where guests can enjoy the spacious views and afternoon sun. The comfy couches and a swing chair provide the perfect spot to enjoy a good book or casual banter over a cup of coffee, while the children play in the garden or nearby fields.

The patio, with its BBQ facilities, also has a large 8-seater dining table and benches that provides a great place for outside entertainment.

The three bedrooms have brand new luxury beds (two queen size and two singles) covered with percale cotton linen to ensure a good night’s rest. Each room has wall heaters for the more chilly Hilton nights. The large main bedroom has a work station for a laptop, and an en suite bathroom with shower and large corner bath. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom with a shower.

A unique feature of THE STUDIO is that all the art works are originals painted by your host, Shelagh, and all paintings are available for purchase, so the next time you visit there will probably new art on the walls!
