The accommodation includes a double bedroom, spacious bathroom, hallway and large sitting room, which can be used as extra accommodation if required (the modula sofa matches the measurements of a single bed, offering space for two).
Breakfast is a choice of full English or continental and is served in the main house dining room at a time that suits. Freshly squeezed orange juice, grapefruit and homemade jams and marmalade are all included.
