Tractor Shed

Tractor-shed---photo-by-Claire-Spelling.jpgTractor Shed  with Eco - Hot Tub (optional extra)
(2 bedrooms - sleeps 4)

Once the tractor shed, now a lovely cottage, has its own large terraced garden and Patio complete with garden table. On one of the terraces now sits its own wood-fired hot tub which is available for guests staying in the Tracor Shed to hire.   The interior is enriched with many exposed stone walls and traditionally made oak ledge and brace doors. It is self-contained and has oil-fired central heating and double glazing throughout.

Kitchen With granit tops and fitted with fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave, and Everhot traditional cooking range, which keeps the kitchen lovely and warm and cooks just like an aga.

Downstairs Bathroom with spa bath – Just lovely !

Sitting room with dining table, TV, cast iron electric stove and french windows to the patio and enclosed terraced garden.  

Bedrooms - Upstairs there are two bedrooms both with lovely views over the gardens and fields beyond.  They both have zip n link beds which  can either be super king or twin.  They are made up with Egyptian cotton sheets and trimmed with Prince of Wales tartan runners and cushions - just scrumptious. 

Upstairs bathroom with marble topped vanity unit, shower and toilet.

Eco Hot-Tub especially for Tractor Shed Guests

We hired it, we tried it.. and we fell in love with it soooo kept it for our Tractor Shed guests to hire as we did.  It sits so perfectly in the terraced gardens and is a delight to both look at and use.  Regrettably we don’t have a Tub for our guests staying in other parts of Brandy House …… yet!! 

Indulgence and luxury combined with eco-responsibility in the open air

 Our Western Red Cedar Hot Tub and really fits with Brandy House green ethos - no chemicals - no electricity – no noisy pumps - no underwater lights - no plastic - no bubbles... It is a totally unique experience, where you can listen to the crackling of the fire you have created and enjoy the smell of the burning wood and aroma of red-cedar as the water heats up.  Heating using wood is part of the ritual,  as the fire gets going and the water temperature rises so does the anticipation. Just warm water heated by the fire and an opportunity lie back and star gaze … A totally relaxing and de-stressing experience.

We recommend that you consult your doctor if you are pregnant or if you have any kind of heart or respiratory problems before using the hot tub.

Prior booking is essential, as each hire period requires a fresh fill of water.  It takes 1600 litres of water, which takes around 4 hours to fill, and then the fire takes 4-6 hours to bring it up to temperature.   It takes between 3-6 bags of well-seasoned wood to heat the water and we use a locally sourced (one of our neighbours’!) renewable supply of mixed hard and soft wood.   Once it is up to temperature the insulating properties of the Red Cedar mean that it only loses a few degrees over night and so is easily brought up again with a fire for about an hour. 

Hot-Tub Familiarisation :

We will prepare the hot tub for you so you can experience it on your first evening and will teach you how to light the fire to bring it up to temperature for the rest of  your hire period.  If you are diligent about showering before you bathe then the water lasts for 3 days. For guest wishing an additional hire there needs to be a day between for draining, re-filling, sanitising and re-heating the tub.
