To the left of the hall is a sitting room with wood burning stove and a west facing window with a window seat/storage box. To the right of the entrance hall is an alternative main reception room; most recently used as a fourth bedroom, it would also work well as a dining room.

This open plan room has another woodburning stove at one end and a C shaped arrangement of units in the kitchen which is fitted with an electric cooker and stainless steel sink.
