This comfortable room has a choice of seating from which to enjoy the TV/DVD at the end of a busy day, whilst the dining table sits between the lounge area and the doorway which leads through to the kitchen. This well-equipped room has everything that guests will need to prepare all their favourite dishes including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. The bedroom meanwhile is a peaceful double room which benefits from its own TV making it perfect for enjoying some late-night television. The bathroom offers not only a bath, but also a separate shower cubicle and WC.

Patio doors from the lounge lead directly out to the wonderfully spacious garden, where guests will find a relaxing patio area complete with chairs and sun loungers, overlooking the generously-sized lawns which are bordered by mature shrubs and fruit trees. It is a haven for wildlife with red squirrels and a variety of birds often seen, aswell as clear and twinkly night skies if the weather is right. There is off-road parking for one car.
