Entrance
Front entrance hall with doors to private living room, kitchen, understairs utility room and stair flight rising to first floor. Radiator and tiled flooring.

Kitchen
21' 9'' x 9' 2'' (6.64m x 2.80m)
A super galley style kitchen with many features. The kitchen is very well equipped and includes a serving hatch to the main Tea Room and a delightful stable door to the rear courtyard garden. The exposed ceiling timbers are a delight. The 'Worcester' gas fired boiler is also located in the kitchen.

Private Living/Dining Room
30' 2'' x 10' 9'' (9.20m x 3.28m)
(This room could also be used as an extension of the Tea Rooms) Wow! What a room, with its flag stone floors, four sliding sash windows, super inglenook fireplace with freestanding wood burner under a sandstone mantle and surround which makes this room very interesting. Again all under exposed ceiling timber. Two radiators, natural stone walls mixed with plaster painted finish, two central lights plus mood spotlights and connecting door to Tea Rooms.

Tea Rooms
30' 7'' x 12' 2'' (9.32m x 3.70m)
A most impressive area with a separate entrance to the side of the property. Period arched windows together with the hardwood arched door provide ample light from the south/west and then the timber door to the courtyard garden is also flanked by two high level windows. The small but effective serving/coffee barista station is ideally linked to the kitchen for effective service. The wrought iron/timber tread spiral stair flight is indeed intriguing as it winds up to two further seating areas which with its vaulted/beamed ceiling can only be described as impressive. The ground and first floor rooms also create the gift shop floor with quality effects displayed for sale in a truly unique fashion. Circa 38 covers are available in these two areas.

First Floor
31' 4'' x 12' 4'' (9.55m x 3.77m)
Flanked by two interesting fireplaces. From this floor the fire escape door leads to the former smoke house (currently used as storage) and a stone stair flight down into the amazing court yard garden with its 10 covers and features - too many to mention. The main bedroom balcony looks over as does the over head vine. This outside area measures circa 7.45m x 3.00m (narrowing to 1.95). A contemporary cloakroom is also provided from here plus an additional storeroom/refuse store.

The stair flight rises to the first floor landing from the main hallway.

Landing
Doors to all first floor rooms and access to roof space.

Bedroom One
18' 3'' x 8' 6'' (5.55m x 2.59m)
What a stunning room with vaulted ceiling, built in wardrobes and access to a beautiful balcony over looking the garden area. Door to en-suite.

En-suite
Low level W/C, pedestal wash hand basin and heated towel rail.

Bedroom Two
13' 5'' x 8' 11'' (4.10m x 2.73m)
Again a delightful room with coved ceiling, sliding sash window and radiator.

Bedroom Three
8' 11'' x 8' 1'' (2.72m x 2.46m)
Sliding sash window, built in cupboards and radiator.

Bedroom Four
8' 2'' x 8' 0'' (2.50m x 2.45m)
A great room dual aspect sliding sash window overlooking the village square. Wash hand basin set in cupboard unit, radiator and built in clothes hanging area.

Bedroom Five/Study
11' 2'' x 5' 11'' (3.40m x 1.80m) (narrowing to 1.20m)
A small room with a surprise... sliding sash window over looking the village square, built in 'high level' cupboard and book shelves. Stair flight rising to a rather poise roof space.

Roof Space
L-Shaped
Again an interesting area with roof light windows set in sloping ceilings with exposed roof timbers, cladding and lighting making this roof space a useful space. Whilst this roof space is currently used as a bedroom it is not marketed as such and in addition has not been priced as a habitable room.

Main Family Bathroom
10' 3'' x 5' 11'' (3.13m x 1.80m)
A lovely bathroom with many features such as an exposed natural stone wall, a stained glass window panel, a slipper type free standing bath with claw feet and mixer tap cluster. Pedestal wash hand basin, low level W/C, heated towel rail and extractor fan. Corner shower enclosure with mains fed shower and glass door over. Tiled floor and part tiled walls.

Outside
To the front there is a seating area outside of the front of the property which is communal seating for anyone to use.
