The two double bedrooms are both very generously sized, both having large double-glazed sash windows looking out towards the breath-taking Yorkshire Wolds. Both having new carpets and trademark panelling on feature walls, they hold a relaxing feel and luxurious quality.

A further single bedroom also benefits from new carpets, with further attributes such as a half-height wall panelling within a decorative arch, a wooden bench seat and exposed beams. The room would also lend itself to a home study or nursery.

Completing the first-floor accommodation is the stylish family bathroom which boasts a modern three-piece suite consisting of a panelled bath with handheld shower over, low flush WC, Heritage hand wash basin and distinct heated towel rail. Stone tiles are laid to the floor and wall around the bath, with the remaining walls decorated with beautiful wood panelling.
