One is quite a surprise, unique and rather quirky - a bath 'cupboard' in the master bedroom - the other one is a very smart shower room. Downstairs is a well-equipped kitchen, a separate utility/cloakroom, a spacious dining room, and a really cosy, comfortable sitting room with an open fire and a table for a romantic diner a deux. The garden runs to three sides of the house and is quite magical, with different 'rooms' to explore and enjoy.
