On sunny days you’ll be bathed in rays so leave the door to the sitting room open, choose from a collection of arty books and plonk yourself down on the leather sofa for a balmy doze. There’s a roomy feel, a TV that does everything including music, walls of exposed brick or stone, many of Clive’s photos to admire and a Scandinavian wood-burner that belts out the heat when the weather isn’t kind.
Cooks will be delighted with the attractive kitchen: all the kit you could need, a door to the terrace for al fresco meals, Sophie Conran Portmeirion pottery, cookery books and some welcoming treats – a bottle of wine, local ginger biscuits, popcorn, tea and a bottle of proper milk from Alkmonton dairy. Upstairs is another seating or work area and the peaceful, charming bedroom.
Saunter into town for independent shops, a good fishmonger and The Greenman public house and restaurant.
