There is space to relax, dine and cook. The partially open-plan layout allows for conversation to flow freely throughout the room, ideal for entertaining and contemporary living.
The views from the windows are simply fantastic. Green as far as the eye can see as you spot the rolling hills of the Forest of Bowland.
