Two radiators are installed, television connections are available and there are two ceiling light points

Dining Room 4.32m x 4.23m (14ft 2ins x 13ft 10ins)

Pleasington village has three excellent pub/eateries, an historic Catholic Priory, one of the North’s finest inland golf courses and a railway station with connections linking to the West Coast main line at Preston [Glasgow-Euston]. Several schools are located with 3 miles of the property and these include Westholme and QEGS, two of the areas top achieving centres of education.
