The bedrooms have plenty of storage space and share two large family bathrooms, both with walk-in showers, and baths where you can soak your muscles and relax after the day’s activities.
The master bedroom is particularly special as it features a king-size bed plus a unique single bed, with steps leading up to a mezzanine area which contains two further single beds; ideal for your little ones to have a tree-top adventure.
