Our house is full of character with an open fire in the living room which opens with French doors on to a veranda and large shaded decked area. The garden is informal but beautiful and visited by local wildlife. There is a further terraced area for outdoor dining. Our kitchen has glazed dining area which looks out onto the garden. The master bedroom is light and airy looking out over the park and has a shower ensuite. There is a second smaller double bedroom. There is a large loft room which has a double sofa bed.
We are on the edge of town on a quiet residential road.

There are also lovely walks from the house, and within 15 mins drive.
