Description of the building:
Entering the Coach Inn and Horse Changing Station from the main road you walk into the spacious and fully reconstructed hall, which separates the left and right ground floor apartments. They are identical and comprise of one extra-large room, one room suitable as a kitchen and dining area and a large bathroom with WC. At the end of the large entrance hall is the exit to the courtyard.
The wide oak staircase leads to the 1st floor and further to a very specious attic, which may be utilised for artistic or other purposes (e.g. studio, exhibition area).
The large courtyard is surrounded by a steep forest, rocks and a manmade stone wall. A deep water well is built from river stones and has an ample supply of good quality water throughout the whole year. From the wide balcony of the house we can see the opening to the cellar. In olden times the unknown stonemason hand carved the cellar into the rock underneath the steep forest – it is quite large (20 x 8 m), with a constant temperature of 8C. Another advantage is that there are no stairs leading into the cellar.
Doors and some windows are authentic, in the baroque style. There are 3 beautiful ceramic baroque stoves in the Coach Inn and Horse Changing Station, 2 of them are fully functional.
It is possible to create parking spaces around the stables.
