The adjoining sitting room is a great place to curl up on the sofa and read while enjoying the views of the emerald green hills. This sofa also folds out to accommodate two guests. Enjoy the TV and VCR from here as well. There is a bedroom off this room with a double bed and Gothic coat press (armoire), a perfect place for clothing storage.
Above the sitting room is a loft bedroom that overlooks the fireplace and has a single bed.
The main bedroom is off of the dining room and has a double bed and ensuite shower/w.c. Its views are of the ravine and front garden.
