Guests can indulge in a hearty meal at the dining table, with views out across the south-westerly facing garden, before cosying up in the sitting area to rest their feet.

When the sun is shining, throw open the glass doors and head out into the garden, where you will find a patio which is ideal for alfresco dining, so why not enjoy a glass of your favourite beverage in the fresh air?

When sleep calls, three stunning bedrooms await your rest, so choose between a ground-floor super-king-size with bath which can be set up as a twin on request, a super-king-size with en-suite shower room, and a twin.
