Just ask for details.The main house has three reception rooms plus a kitchen and utility room, every room leads out into the garden with wraparound patios and paths and the house is incredibly light due to the double height glass and bi-fold or French doors. All rooms are open plan to create a really sociable environment. The kitchen is fully equipped for a large group with a range cooker, two dishwashers, an extra oven and microwave, its granite worktops and maple inlaid units make cooking a delight, chat to friends in the dining room or snuggle around the wood burner. All four bedrooms in the main house are ensuite (the main bathroom interconnects with two bedrooms), with high quality mattresses you will have a great nights sleep and be refreshed in the morning with a power or rain shower or relax in the double ended bath. There are another two bedrooms and shower room in the smaller barn which also has its own sitting area for a quiet coffee and croissant.The bedrooms can be configured in a variety of ways to suit almost any group, with some on the ground floor making access very easy.
