You enter the apartment from the courtyard with a small step up into the hallway, the apartment benefits from being on the ground floor and all on one level.

Two 2-seater sofas provide ample seating for 4, where you are able to enjoy the glowing electric fire and read a book or while the evening away in front of the smart tv. 2 large windows provide lovely views across the garden and quite often you can watch the pheasants and rabbits saunter past!
