New Sitting Room

Down small steps leading from one end of the back extention is the new house Sittingroom. This is large and open with a beamed ceiling and stone walls. It has three large sofas grouped together around a fireplace and a table and chairs for games etc. (See picture to the left)

There are three windows overlooking the farmyard to the front and another door leading to the farm yard. Stairs lead up from here to the two bedrooms and bathroom of this side of the house.

Old Sitting Room

Also accessed from steps leading from the Kitchen is the old Sittingroom. This has a large fireplace with two sofas (see picture bottom left). There is also a desk to write post cards etc. Again this has the original oak beams, stone walls and vast fire place. This fireplace is the dominant feature of the ground floor room with its stone lintel, huge carved stone blocks and raised hearth. Another smaller but equally interesting feature is the original 18th century stone basin set into an arched recess in the wall by the front door; this is where the family would have washed and prepared food.

The main front door to the cottages leads directly into this room so we have also provided a coat rack and somewhere to deposit boots, toys etc. when you come into the room. Stairs lead up from here to the three bedrooms and bathroom of this side of the house.

Games, Books and Music

We have tried to leave an assortment of board games, cards, books and magazines (some French some English) in the houses to read and look through. There are also several radios and a CD/casette player and some old music casettes.
