To the other end is a cosy lounge area with a vintage tiled fireplace and woodburner effect fire, gas heater and a TV with DVD and CD player. The kitchen and bathroom facilities are located in two separate adjacent buildings leading off the outside veranda, so you will not have to walk far to prepare meals.
