A perfect antidote for those just wanting to wind down, read or just find some space to relax or do some work if you need to. The inclusive WiFi gives you options.
Two wood burning stoves in the property give you the chance to create a special atmosphere during the autumn and winter months. Perfect for a romantic or cosy night in with the shutters closed.
