Our home

Open for offers for Summer 2013.

Our home is modern, spacious and comfortable with four bedrooms - two of which are en-suite. There are four bathrooms in total, two with showers and one with a bath. We have a large, fully-equipped and welcoming kitchen and adjoining dining room where we love to cook and entertain. In the sitting room we have a t.v. with satellite channels, dvd player, Wii and a great selection of dvds and books. The large decking area to the rear of the house is ideal for barbecues and dining outside during the summer months. There is a swing, slide and see-saw set in the garden as well as a trampoline, basketball hoop and soccer goals. The stream running through the front garden attracts a great variety of wildlife- we've even spotted some foxes visiting for a drink! Our house is very child-friendly with lots of children's books, games, dvds and toys for all ages.
