Gather all together around the dining table beneath the rustic wooden beams lining the ceiling, while up two steps the chef of the group can make the most of the high-quality appliances at hand.

Carry your conversations through to the sitting room where you can find a second woodburning stove sitting within a stone built inglenook, with tasteful soft furnishings to relax on, or spend a moment to yourself within the bright and airy conservatory, a sunny spot to enjoy a good book.
