When a place has been put together with this much love and care, it’s difficult not to be swept up in the sheer romance of it all. A Winter Rose, built c.1910, has been meticulously restored and enhanced to accommodate the modern guest.

The house is positioned perfectly so that you can sit and admire the established gardens from the comfort of the light filled sunroom. Or you can simply take a turn around the meandering paths and be captivated by the unique garden art and towering trees.

Accommodating up to six guests, with three uniquely decorated and privately accessed bedrooms, this is the perfect spot for 2 or for 2-3 couples who can socialize in the shared spaces but retreat to their own bedrooms, with private bathrooms, when a little alone time is needed.

Whilst retaining its rustic vintage charm, with a nod to yesteryear in its beautiful selection of furniture and artwork, a Winter Rose is the perfect mountain retreat. And once you enter the maple leaf gates you will feel inspired, refreshed and ready to return to the world renewed.

COMING SOON: The stand-alone studio at the front of the property will soon be available for private events, creative retreats and workshops.
