The beautiful kitchen is equipped with everything you need for proper cooking; a 4-burner gas hob, Smeg fridge, oven, Smeg Toaster, Le Creuset kettle, scales, sharp knives, cafetière, stove top espresso maker, cookery books…. if you need it and it’s not there already we will lend it to you. There are even fresh herbs growing just outside the front door.
The bedroom has a double bed snugly fitted in to the curved end of the caravan. The bed is slightly longer and slightly narrower than a standard double bed (125cm x 195cm) . But as there is no chance of you falling out of the bed (see photo of bed below), you are able to enjoy the full width! Bedding is pure French linen and Hungarian Goose down. There is even a wall mounted TV for snuggling up to watch a movie. Access is only from one side of the bed so a certain amount of agility is required – not for those with restricted mobility.
The bathroom has a proper flushing toilet, heater and an electric power shower. Hammam towels and cotton bath robes are provided.
Finally, there is an eating and seating area which can convert in to another single bed. Suitable for an adult or child. To keep you nice and warm there is a wood burner (you can even make your toast on it!) and a heater.
There is plenty of storage space and another TV and dvd player in the living area.
And that's just the caravan. Outside Tin Can Cottage you have exclusive use of your own private outdoor space. Tucked into a secluded walled terrace, that you can nip down to in your bath robe is a beautiful wood-fired DutchTub (hot tub). You can sit in the classically designed tub and relax with a cold drink by the light of a crackling fire and twinkling fairy lights.
While you are waiting for your hot tub to heat up (patience will be rewarded here!) you can relax back up on the main terrace. Here you have a covered seating area with gas barbecue, for when you want to eat outside, but need a little shelter from the English weather. There is also a fire bowl, complete with cooking pan and griddle so that you can sit and cook under the stars too. You will be provided with an allocation of wood upon your arrival. Should you require additional wood, this can be purchased.
Also on the terrace is a converted livestock trailer with a washing machine, large sink and a microwave as well as storage space for your coats, boots and sporting equipment (see photo on gallery page).
In addition to all of the private comforts of the Tin Can Cottage, you are also free to roam Coombe Farm. You can stroll to meet the pigs, chickens and sheep, swim in the pool, enjoy the gardens, sit by the stream, picnic on the lawn or start on a walk on the footpath that runs through the farm.
Coombe Farm is a working farm. So you will never be far from the sights and sounds of livestock and agricultural machinery.
