In here, exposed beams and vaulted ceilings frame this perfectly portioned room; the huge floor-to-ceiling windows are a striking element, as is the woodburning stove set within a traditional surround. Cosy up after a bracing day walking on the plush sofas to tune into the TV, with the fire setting the ambiance and filling the room with a gentle warmth or gather at the dining table to relish in the company of your loved ones over a home-cooked meal and an accompanying tipple. Discover the well-equipped kitchen to the opposite end of the room, where contemporary tiles lie beneath a traditional AGA, which takes centre stage before all of the other quality appliances that are on hand for catering your own meals and snacks. Working in synergy with the kitchen is the handy utility room, housing a freezer and laundry equipment, as well as plenty of preparation space to keep the kitchen clutter free for the chef of the group, whilst they are cooking up a storm.

At Rough Bank Barn, the garden has been designed as an extension of the house itself, with lush green lawn areas for children to play and your canine companion to meander, whilst you kick back on the sun loungers to soak up the sunshine or dine alfresco on the patio area. Continuing to impress, within the garden there is a barbecue hut, where you can light up the fire and huddle inside to relish in this unique experience before savouring a moment of relaxation by dipping into the hot tub, where the countryside views continue to captivate.
