cabinets and granite work surfaces. The sitting room boasts quarry
tiled floors and an efficient wood burning stove. The staircase is
handcrafted from English Oak and Elm and the wooden floors
continue into the three bedrooms upstairs, with their panelled
walls and beams. The quality of the present owners restoration
