Period features include fireplaces, flagstone flooring, window seats and, with the flexible accommodation arranged over two floors and the addition of a substantial attic on the second floor, it provides great family living space.

The large open plan kitchen/breakfast room has windows and doors on two sides opening to the gardens and is a great setting for family gatherings.
