The traditional beams remain as you move into the sitting room with its inviting sofa space and where a wood burning stove takes centre stage in the gorgeous stone feature fireplace.

To complete the ground floor, there is a garden room, which makes for a great escape when you can't all agree on a film to watch, which also leads into a games room with a pool table, dart board, TV and an arcade machine with 2500 games.
