The front facing master bedroom has a generous dressing room, which could be used as an office or nursery, and the second front facing bedroom has an internal walk-in wardrobe/dressing room. All of the bedrooms have a dual aspect making them naturally light.

The Studio, which has been a successful holiday let currently comprises a sitting room / bedroom with ornate cornicing, separate kitchen, a walk in cupboard, bathroom and a rear vestibule with access to the garden. There is a dressing area between the sitting room / bedroom and bathroom.
