Inside, light simply pours in through the glass-heavy structure, creating an airy, cheerful atmosphere throughout the day. High ceilings and muted blues, greys and whites instil a sense of calm in the open plan living space, where guests tend to find themselves congregating at the start and close of the day.

One is made up with a Euro King sized bed while the other is equipped with twin singles. In addition, a ground floor study comes complete with a fold-down bed, to create an additional bedroom.
Upstairs on the first floor, a master bedroom has the benefit of a full en-suite bathroom, as well as views over the back garden. It is worth noting that the downstairs bedrooms can be accessed without having to climb stairs, making this a popular choice with guests who have limited mobility.
