From the hall, there is a fine wooden staircase leading to the first floor where there is a total of six spacious double bedrooms, 4 en-suite, and two small interconnecting singles, as well as a large family bathroom.

At the heart of the house is the kitchen which is very well provided for with everything required for catering on a 'family' scale. Beyond this is a family farmhouse-style sitting room with an enormous walk-in open fireplace and an original bread oven. This is a cosy room to retreat to on a chilly winters evening or on return from a day on the beaches.
