This then takes you to the dining room with plenty of seating and a bar to take advantage of. The well-equipped kitchen is decorated to a high standard with everything needed for those home-cooked meals with a downstairs shower room also. Upstairs are two double bedrooms with plenty of storage as well as a feature fireplace in both with an en-suite bathroom from one of the bedrooms.
