Whitehaven is spacious, well-equipped and stylish, with the warmth of oak floors in the games room, living room and snug. A big kitchen diner is light and airy with a big, sturdy table which comfortably seats 12 people.

Designed as a sociable space with ease and convenience in mind, the kitchen has a double oven range with a large gas hob, an American style fridge/freezer, a microwave and a dishwasher. Right next to the kitchen is a handy utility area with a washing machine and a tumble dryer, and a door to the separate WC. 

Off the dining room is the games room with a pool table perfect for some in-house competition; continue through to the spacious  living room with a large TV, a traditional style woodburning stove (lovely for those chillier times of the year) and French doors leading out to the patio and garden.

There is also a cosy snug on the ground floor, the ideal space for some downtime with a good book, or a good place to sit and have a quiet chat. Next to this is the downstairs bedroom which has zip and link beds to be configured to a kingsize or twin room, according to your requirements. This is a bright and cheerful bedroom with an ensuite shower room and French doors out to the garden.

There are 5 further good sized bedrooms on the first floor, all with flatscreen TV's; three of these have ensuite shower rooms and the other two have a shared bathroom with a bath with overhead shower.

The big garden is a serious draw of this marvellous property; there are gorgeous views across the countryside, and woodland to one side so it's a great spot for watching wildlife. When the skies are blue and the sun is shining you can enjoy a big barbecue on the patio, and if the English weather should let you down you can take shelter in the heated pavillion which can easily seat your entire party. Just imagine sitting there with a glass of wine or a beer, putting the world to rights as the night draws in.

The swimming pool measures 10x5m and has a constant depth of 1.2m. It is housed in a separate building close to the house, and has a WC and heaps of natural light from the floor to ceiling windows which open out onto the garden.
