About our home

Our lovely home was originally built in the early 1900’s. Over the years it has been extended and modernised to a very comfortable spacious home which we love. Upstairs there are 4 lovely double bedrooms - 3 double and one twin/bunks. The master bedroom has a walk through wardrobe and en Suite with jacuzzi and double shower. There is a sofa bed in the lounge which could accommodate 2. There is a large family room/kitchen with study area, a formal dining room for 12 and a lovely dual aspect lounge. Open fires make our home very warm and cosy in winter - but it is also cool in summer. 5 sets of double French doors open out onto a large patio with a water feature and many seating areas, with an electric awning for shade. The garden also houses many child attractions- a swing/ cabin/slide combination, a large trampoline and a zip wire!
There are bikes in the garage and a car available to swap. A recent addition is a 3.5m diameter raised pool - for those hot summer days.
We also have a 6 berth motor home which could be “swapped” if you can arrange insurance. It’s a lovely house to live in.
