The handsome interior of the imposing Farmhouse invites guests to come in and while away an evening in front of a roaring fire in the beamed drawing room, enjoy a book or classic movie moment in the snug-style library and have a daytime catch-up in the magnificent dual aspect lake view conservatory.

The welcoming warmth of the Barn’s open plan living room with electric wood burning stove also invites guests in to relax and unwind; with Wi-Fi access, flat screen TV’s, DVD players and toasty under flooring featuring to both.
