The traditional cottage kitchen is full of charming original features including pamment tiled floor, exposed brickwork, original wooden framing, and 2 AGA’s.

Adjoining the kitchen is the cosy lounge, furnished with 2 comfy sofas and a leather armchair focused around the original brick fireplace with wood burning stove. This room really comes into its own in the cooler months when the wood burning stove is roaring away and you have returned from a brisk walk in the elements! In this room there is also a variety of board games and puzzles available for your use, and a quirky feature is the hidden TV that can be brought out when you want to watch your favourite shows on Now TV, or keep it tucked away and enjoy some quality time together.
