The cosy sitting room has high vaulted ceilings with plenty of exposed oak beams, a collection of deep sofas and a woodburner to toast your toes after a day’s walking in the countryside, or a hectic day on the beach. Relax together for a film night or for a quieter moment there is a piano for the musical member of the family to entertain you.
The cottage has a mixture of ground floor and first-floor bedrooms, most with en-suite bathrooms, some with private TVs and a combination of bed sizes that ensure the whole family has a very comfy stay.
The master bedroom has a super king-size bed with an en-suite and has the added touch of an ethanol fire built between the bedroom and bathroom for that romantic feel!
To keep the whole family amused between meals and outings, there is the warm cosy games room which also has a woodburner and sofas, perfect for the spectators of the pool table.
Why not relax in the sauna, have a dip in the swimming pool or chill out in the hot tub under the stars?
For teenies and pets, there is an enclosed courtyard garden with Wendy house and lawn area, plus plenty of seats for adults to sit peacefully.
