Further details indoors

Entering through the original double doors into the imposing medieval style hall, you will immediately be wowed by the space and light in this spectacularly restored 18th Century home. The original cartwheel light fitting adds to the baronial feel of this room which is the hub of the property with its large dining table and seating for 10. This leads through to a second reception hall with wooden pews and doors through to the Veranda. The enormous beamed living room, with comfortable overstuffed sofas and armchairs, has seating for 12. The original inglenook stone fireplace, with dog iron grate is perfect for chilly evenings.

The large well equipped farmhouse kitchen has a large oak refectory table (perfect for the children's tea) with two traditional French Dressers filled with lovely crockery. This leads out to the gardens and has views across the meadow and woodlands. The original wooden stairs (with safety banisters) lead to the oldest part of Le Grange. The huge beamed Master Bedroom has a medieval feel with double bed, sofa, armchairs and large wardrobes. The original barn doors have been used to create an entrance into the en-suite with free standing claw foot bath, marble sink and loo. There are two further bedrooms to this part of the house – one with double bed and the other a children's room with three single beds and shared bathroom. A second flight of steps leads up from the entrance hall to 3 further bedrooms – one with double bed and en-suite, one with twin beds and the other with a double bed and shared bathroom.
