The wide timber door opens to the stone floored hall which has the main stairs leading to the first floor. There is a recess beneath for coats.

The drawing room enjoys a double aspect with shuttered windows to the garden. Book shelves are fitted to either side of the fireplace which houses a wood burning stove.

The dining room also enjoys a double aspect and has a bay with French doors opening to the terrace. A wood burning stove stands upon a quarry tiled hearth.

The inner hall, with its quarry tiled floor, provides access to the useful cellar and to the former servant’s staircase to the first floor.

The hall continues on to the farmhouse kitchen which also has a quarry tiled floor. A window with seat beneath is set to the front elevation. A four oven Aga with companion is set to one end of the room. The fitted furniture has a hardwood work surface and inset butler sink.  There is ample space for a farmhouse table for dining. A door leads off to the utility room which in turn provides access to the WC and to the garden.

A second door leads through to the superb conservatory that was constructed by Amdega. This has a tiled floor and French doors opening to the terrace. Its double glazed construction allows for year round use. 

The first floor is approached via two staircases. The main stairs have a beautiful mahogany handrail. The landing is wonderfully light with a number of west facing windows with seats beneath. Both sets of stairs continue to the second floor. On the first floor there are three double bedrooms, two of which have fireplaces and fitted cupboards. They each enjoy a view over the garden.
