The first floor is the perfect area for socializing, the L-shaped sofa making the most of the river views through large balcony doors, there is also another flat screen TV so families with children have two areas to relax in. The kitchen/diner leads seamlessly from the lounge area and has been treated with the same attention to detail as the rest of this property, offering integrated cooker and hob, dishwasher, fridge freezer (and washer/dryer in adjoining utility cloakroom). The dining area has ample seating with views across the old railway station and out over rolling countryside. The second floor master bedroom with a king-size bed is light and very comfortable with shower and dressing room, the double bedroom also on this floor has use of the main bathroom.
