There is also a spacious family shower room upstairs, and a downstairs toilet. Downstairs, there is a large, open-plan living space with patio doors on to a private terrace with table and chairs enjoying wonderful countryside views. The dining table is placed by these French doors, so even when dining indoors you have the perfect opportunity to take in the views. The kitchen area is fully equipped for self-catering, with all the utensils you’ll need, plus washing machine, double oven, fridge freezer, dishwasher and microwave. The lounge has a wood-burning stove (logs provided), a TV, DVD player, iPod docking station and a Sonos WiFi speaker.
