Heading through a doorway brings you into the cosy lounge. Full of character features, this welcoming room has an open fire and TV for those chilly winter evenings in. When the day is done, take the stairs to the first floor where you can choose from two spacious super king-size zip and link bedrooms (one with TV and both can be arranged as a twin on request). There is also a cosy single on offer here. Completing the accommodation is a stylish bathroom, with bath, separate shower and WC.

Heading outside brings you into the pretty garden which wraps around the property. Here you can enjoy a meal or drinks at the table. Younger members of the family will enjoy a bounce on the trampoline, or why not head into the games room and try your hand at table tennis? Ample off-road parking is available on the private driveway.
