About our home

Our home is made of Cotswold stone which is a deep honey colour. It was built in 1839, and has many original features including an inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove and a bottle well (now incorporated within the house). On the ground floor there are three reception rooms, a book room, a small toilet, utility room, and a fully fitted kitchen with an AGA, dishwasher, fridge, microwave, washing machine, dryer. The house is kept warm by oil-fired central heating and the AGA. There is a cellar. We have a television with terrestrial channels, plenty of children's toys (suitable to age 8), telephone, computer and broadband connection. On the first floor, there are two bathrooms, one with a shower, the other with a bath. There are four bedrooms, one double, two twin-bed, and one single - all the single beds are wooden sleigh-type beds. We have two wooden cots for use, if required. We have a 3/4 acre established garden with apple trees, a large willow, a small stream, a pond with gold fish, and lots of hiding places for children. There is a private drive-way with off-street parking and a two-car garage and green house.
