THE WEST WING forms the greater part of a traditionally built thatched Longhouse. Dating back to the 16th century and Grade II listed, the interior has been tastefully restored and offers a wealth of period features, including exposed beams and inglenook fireplaces.
Approached through a private, walled patio garden, the entrance porch leads to the main hallway.
The well-fitted kitchen has an electric double-oven and a ceramic hob, microwave, fridge-freezer + second fridge, dishwasher etc and a table that seats 5. You will find plenty of crockery and utensils for 12 plus spares for visitors.
The oak-floored sitting room has a massive inglenook fireplace with a woodburning stove, Sony Bravia TV with Freesat HD, DVD player, CD player with Ipod dock and comfortable seating.
The dining room, which seats up to 16, has an inglenook and a polished hardwood floor, offering a perfect setting for that special celebration meal.
Leading off the hallway is a second sitting room or ‘snug’ with a second TV + Video player and a utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer, sink & loo.
Also on the ground floor is a twin bedded room with an en-suite shower room & loo.
Upstairs, there are five comfortable bedrooms (double + 4 twins), a family bathroom with bath, shower & loo, and a further shower room with loo & washbasin.
