Holiday Rental House
Arranged on two floors the accommodation downstairs comprises a country style kitchen complete with an old pine table and kitchen dresser. The informal rustic look is followed through in the adjacent living room. A large rug covers the terracotta pammet floor and the seating is a miscellany of comfy chairs. A generously stocked old pine bookcase, some traditional games, a radio and T.V. offer a choice of bedroom entertainment. Upstairs there are two charming double rooms, one has a view of the Cathedral. Both have Victorian brass and cast iron bedsteads, with interior sprung mattresses, made up with crisp white cotton bedding. There is also a single room: originally the grain store it is now a cosy cabin sized room appealing to young and old alike. All the beds have Hollow fibre duvets an...Arranged on two floors the accommodation downstairs comprises a country style kitchen complete with an old pine table and kitchen dresser.
