Inside, the farmhouse is warm and elegant, boasting well-proportioned rooms and stone mullioned windows throughout.
The kitchen/breakfast room is the real heart of the house, perfect for family life with its electric fired 5 door Aga and small snug which would make an excellent playroom for young children. French windows look out to the south facing terrace, offering lovely views of the garden.
