The living room is the perfect place to cosy-up on a winter day.  Think large squashy sofas and roaring open fire, maybe with a hot chocolate or glass of wine.  The wonderfully wonky floor with colourful eclectic rug and the massive inglenook fireplace are charmingly unique original features.  These are complimented by the quality furnishings.
