It is fitted and furnished to an award-winning standard throughout, and is cleaned and cared for every week by the owners. The open-plan downstairs has a west-facing sitting area with comfy chairs, open fire, digital TV, DVD/video, CD/cassette player, telephone and WiFi. The kitchen and dining area is to the rear. In the kitchen we provide high quality crockery, cutlery, pots, pans and cooking utensils.
