It has two bedrooms which are located upstairs;having double handrails on the staircase. The bedrooms both having double beds and en suite shower rooms (we are in the process of upgrading one of the bedrooms to a super king size bed which can be divided into two single beds if required).

All beds have goose feather and down duvets, which can be changed to non-allergenic replacements if necessary. All bedding and towels are included; a hair-dryer is also provided.
Downstairs features a large living and dining space with ample seating and includes a 32" flat wide screen TV with Freeview, a DVD player and a DAB radio.
