The Farmhouse is spacious, airy and has a magnificent sweeping oak staircase leading up to the large master bedroom with kingsize bed, twin room and two bathrooms. Downstairs you will find the third double bedroom with its pretty picturesque window looking onto the garden. Leading off from the hallway with its stone flagged floor into the quaint fully equipped kitchen, from there you come into the large lounge/dining area with its granite stone fireplace with log burning stove.
The thick stone walls maintains a natural coolness in the summer months where you may wish to escape from the heat of the sun.
