Back in the “olden days” the tenants of Doldowlod estate came to pay their monthly rent to Wernhir. They used to queue outside the window in the lounge (Small window on the right hand side of the chimney breast). The lounge, back then used to be the rent collectors office/store full of goods and money brought by the tenants at the end of each month. Visitors are very welcome to relax in the lounge… read a book, watch TV or just enjoy the crackle of the logs burning in the wood burner if the weather is a little chilly.
The Breakfast Room
This room was made into a breakfast room in 2004. It used to be the family kitchen with a Rayburn in the space where the wood burner is now. The bread oven was hidden behind plaster partitioning and was a surprise when we found it. We have tried to retain much of the original character with exposed beams and joists.
Enjoy delicious farmhouse breakfasts based on local fresh produce, or something lighter if you prefer. Evening meals are available locally at the friendly country pub, a 5 minutes drive from the farm.
There is a large parking area at the front of the house where it is safe to park.
Many years ago the garden at the front of the house used to be a vegetable garden with rows of potatoes, tomatoes, carrots, rhubarb etc. Many crab apple trees used to surround the farm and Wernhir was famous for its crab apple jam and cider. The garden has recently been “revamped” (Spring 2010).
Monica’s youngest son- Malcolm, made the lovely porch to provide shelter to weary visitors when it is raining… Malcolm used an old oak A-frame and old slates to give it a “traditional look”. He kindly put down Indian stone around the house and took out some of the trees create a more open space and to improve the views.
