Inside, guests will be spoilt for choice with the amount of space they have to spread out into and the choice of crackling fires in wood-burning stoves to relax in front of in both the snug and the sitting room. The incredibly spacious kitchen/dining room has a sizeable central island that comes in handy when preparing meals.
Useful storage space is provided in the large front porch and the cosy conservatory (off the snug) at the front of the house means that the lovely garden views can be enjoyed whatever the weather.
Spread out over the first floor are a double bedroom and a neat twin room that share a family bathroom and a delightful master suite that benefits from an en suite WC. From the double bedroom a door leads out down steps to a really charming raised patio seating area with a splendid outlook towards the surrounding fields.
The grounds are mainly laid to lawn with lots of mature plants and trees that provide shelter and create an idyllic oasis. Meals can be taken on the patio and there is further seating that is perfect for sitting admiring the garden whilst listening to the birds singing in the trees and the little stream trickling by (care should be taken with children).
