Be welcomed into the homely interior, which offers a well-equipped kitchenette where you can look forward to conjuring up delicious feasts with the help of the two-ring hob, microwave and fridge, as your other half uncorks a bottle of wine and sets the breakfast bar.

Settle down to tuck-in to a flavourful meal, as the wine is poured, and plans are made for the days ahead.

If the weather is nice, why not make dinner an alfresco affair and dine out on your private patio, where you can certainly enjoy dinner with a view.

If you’re not ready for the evening to end, treat yourself to an indulgent soak in the bubbling hot tub as you savour the excellent countryside vistas.

As the evening grows darker, wash away the day in the well-appointed shower room as your towel warms on the nearby heated towel rail.

Snuggle up with your loved one in front of the electric woodburning stove as you select the evening’s entertainment, courtesy of the Smart TV.

As your eyes grow heavy, retire to the sumptuous double bed where you can enjoy a restful night ahead of a day of adventures.
