When the sun is shining you can open two sets of French doors straight out to the garden which is walled and private and has a patio with garden furniture to make the best of the warm weather and to enjoy some al fresco dining.

All three bedrooms are generously proportionedwith ample space for king size beds. The principal bedroom has a wonderful original beam spanning the ceiling giving a feel for the heritage of the building.
