    It’s a lovely place , my only constructive criticism, would be the alley to access the property is dark , the light wasn’t working over the front so maybe a torch and the bolt on the gate needs replacement

Be welcomed into the well-equipped kitchen, where you can look forward to conjuring up a delicious feast for your guests as they set the table and uncork a bottle of wine.

After a hearty meal, head to the sitting room where you can fire up the electric fire, put your feet up and relax in front of your favourite film on the TV.

When sleep calls, retire to one of three tastefully decorated bedrooms, a double, a bunk and on the second floor, a twin, all perfect for catching your rest.
