We've just returned from 3 nights at The Copper House. What can I say that hasn't already been said about this amazing place? From the moment we arrived to a friendly welcome from Linda with a cup of tea and a freshly made, wonderfully decorated cake, we felt completely at home. We stayed in Room 1 which is beautifully decorated with a designer's eye and has every thing you could ask for and more. The bed is supremely comfortable with crisp linens and cozy eider duvet. The bathroom has the deepest bath I've ever sat in with a rainfall shower head. There are quality toiletries and an abundance of towels. Linda and Andy are great hosts who display the right mix of discretion and friendliness. The breakfasts are delivered to your room at a time of your choosing, to be eaten at your leisure. The menu has a good variety of choices and it was all beautifully cooked and presented. The Copper House special is something I am stealing. The room is well equipped with hair dryer, mini fridge (which is stocked with complimentary goodies) and a biscuit barrell filled with home made biscuits that gets replenished daily. It's nice to see filter coffee and there is fresh milk in the fridge.
The house has underfloor heating and it is absolutely seamless. It is not too hot or cold. It's just an even temperature everywhere. And the quiet. It is so quiet that you hear the silence! I sat outside in the dark on a warm evening on the enormous private terrace and it was magic. I could hear a stream somewhere and that was all. Blissful silence. And the stars! This is a special place. A place of quiet and calm and tranquillity. The views are a mix of wild woods and garden with raised veg beds already full of growing produce.
This is not an olde worlde b &b. This is a bang up to date contemporary house that works. If you love design, eco principles, friendly but unobtrusive hosts and seclusion then this is definitely right up your street! Most of all I am just amazed they built every square inch themselves. Two people, with no help, over several years. It's taken me three months to get round to revamping the bedroom. I echo what a previous reviewer said - this is a destination and one I hope to revisit it again very soon.
