The kitchen has everything you need to make a delicious meal or simply to warm up a quick snack in the combination microwave. The new Rayburn acts as the boiler for the radiators and the hot water, is a fantastic oven and keeps the kitchen toasty and warm in winter. The room is airy and bright and has a rural outlook over the garden to a field beyond where cattle graze and hens and pheasants wander. The kitchen is equipped with a fridge freezer, dishwasher, toaster, iron and ironing board. There is a washing machine, tumble drier and toilet in the separate utility room. A complimentary bottle of wine is waiting on your arrival, as well as a pint of milk in the fridge and tea and coffee on a tea tray.
