The Dining Room and Kitchen are open plan and located on the other side of the hall with a traditional table and chairs providing seating for six plus a high chair. There is a DAB Digital FM radio with Bluetooth Stre aming, so you will be able to tune in to a familiar local radio station or play your own music from your smart phone The kitchen has been completely refurbished with plenty of storage space, a new built in double oven incorporating a grill, a surface hob, dishwasher and fridge.

The Conservatory to the rear is entered from a door to the dining room. Comfortable chairs are lightweight and can be easily moved to the patio. The conservatory has windows on three sides providing a cosy sheltered space so you can enjoy views of the birds in the rear garden and hills beyond.
The rear garden can be accessed via the conservatory, living room or utility room. You will find rhubarb, loganberries, strawberries, late raspberries and bramley apples, when in season, and a small herb garden, the produce of which you are welcome to put to good use. The bramley tree is the focal point and a great place to hang bird feeders providing close up views of garden birds and butterflies you will be familiar with and some that are less common.
Two rear Patios are excellent places to rest and relax using our comfortable garden furniture, whilst enjoying being in the garden, having afternoon tea or drink in the evening, or perhaps making use of the barbecue provided.

Please note there is a step to negotiate when entering via the front porch, and when accessing the rear garden from the back door or conservatory with a step down from the raised patio where care needs to be taken. The river bank is planted with shrubs and plants and there is a boundary wall to the village road; but the river boundary is unfenced and the drive is not gated and children will need to be supervised when playing in the garden.
