Guests enter via the lower end of the house into a cosy lounge with a sofa, armchairs, TV, and a large wood burner with a generous supply of logs. From the lounge, take four steps up to the open plan dining and kitchen area, which is the main room and features a high beamed ceiling, here you will find a magnificent display of some larger paintings.
