The kitchen is superbly equipped with dishwasher, ceramic hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and everything you need to rustle up a culinary masterpiece (or beans on toast!).

Relax, drink in the views and read a book. Do some stargazing – there are no streetlights here so the skies are ink blue and the stars are dazzling. Enjoy peace and tranquillity – just the gentle sounds of sheep and birdsong. Breathe in the fresh, pure air and feel yourself unwind.
