Handmade, antique pine furniture, and a mix of old stone, oak and tiled floors and rugs add extra atmosphere, while matching furnishings, central heating, and log stoves downstairs make for an especially comfortable and warm ambience.

Our farmhouse kitchen comprises antique pine kitchen units, a double French pottery sink, stone surfaces and tiled flooring. Overlooking a pretty rear garden, with various herbs, blackberries and fruit trees planted for your culinary use.

The dining room easily seats 10 to 12 at its large farmhouse table, with additional seating for up to 16 and all the crockery you might need. With a log burner set under an impressive inglenook fireplace on one side, it offers an especially comfortable space for entertaining.
