The Property offers a long Hall Room with vaulted ceiling flowing into the dining room with a tall south facing window and is beautifully styled and is in keeping with the character of the property. It is ideal for families or groups of friends with 3 large family bedrooms plus 1 double bedroom and has been cleverly designed with lots of additional spaces for entertaining children and young adults.
