The farmhouse is efficiently centrally heated throughout and all windows are double-glazed. On chilly evenings in the autumn and winter, the large woodburner in the Dining Hall becomes the ‘mother-figure’ of the house and keeps us all as warm as toast. On special occasions we also light an open log fire in the Sitting Room.
The stairs, landing and all bedrooms are fully carpeted – top quality “Axminster” natural weave with deep underlay – so upstairs it’s soft under foot (we ask you to leave your shoes downstairs so you may want to bring slippers with you).The radiators in your room can be turned off if you are too warm and if you are ‘fresh air addicts’ like ourselves, all windows are open-able. All bedrooms are en-suite or have private bathrooms.
