Living Areas

There is a comfortable sitting room with TV and an open fire.  Spend cosy evenings browsing through our collection of leaflets on local attractions, or relaxing with the selection of books gathered by family and visitors.  Board games and card games are enjoyed by children and adults alike.

The large kitchen/dining room spans the width of the house.  This is a homely gathering space while the chef of the family cooks up delicious meals.  There is an electric cooker with ceramic hob and fan oven, a microwave, ‘frig and ‘frig-freezer, dishwasher and washing machine.  Over the years we have collected kitchenware, ovenware, and kitchen tools and gadgets for almost every need, but bring your own favourite slow cooker, pressure cooker or whatever you cannot live without!


Step out through the glass door at the back of the hall and you are in the large garden. The patio next to the house is perfect for meals
out-of-doors, and the walled terrace catches all the afternoon sunshine.

There is something in bloom in every month of the year, and children find it a perfect place for hide-and-seek among mature shrubs and trees.
