Step into the living/kitchen room, where you can conjure up delicious feasts in the well-equipped kitchen or relax in the sitting area in front of a much-loved movie on the DVD player as the woodburning stove crackles nearby.

Settle down to dinner at the dining table for six or dine alfresco out on your rear patio or raised terrace with a backdrop of breath-taking mountain views.

The home also offers an additional sitting room with plush seating and a woodburning stove, perfect for snuggling up with a good book.
