This comfortable room has views from every window and an efficient wood burner provides ample heating in winter. The kitchen and a small wc complete the ground floor. There is also a spacious south facing balcony with views of the surrounding countryside.
The first floor has two good sized bedrooms, a shower room with wc and a small sitting room with a roof terrace. This room could also be used as a small bedroom. There is a further room yet to be developed.
The second floor is given over completely to the master bedroom. This large room has exposed original beams and an open plan bathroom with bath and a walk in wardrobe.

A quite shaded garden is situated immediately below the terrace and a further pretty, non-attached garden is just meters away.
