A farmhouse table and chairs with low level lighting and comfortable seating are made all the more cosy by the underfloor heating. The spacious beamed bedroom can be configured with either a super kingsize bed or two generous-sized singles. Freesat TV is again available. The stunning en suite bathroom has a fully tiled walk in shower and slipper bath, perfect for luxuriating with a glass of something special! Outside is a small private courtyard and terrace, fully equipped for al fresco dining; all set within the friendly owners' English county garden. The Plough Inn, a renowned country dining pub, is 150 yards away (200 yards on the way back!) and offers meal delivery if required. Another great country pub, the Bowl, is less than a mile away.More
