About this listing
With space for three separate beds (including a double), our ensuite family room, with wonderful, far-reaching views over open countryside from both windows, will easily accommodate 2 adults and 2 children. There is also a large garden for you to enjoy and our ponies to say hello to over the fence. In the evening, you can relax in your own separate private snug. In the morning, help yourself to tea, coffee, orange juice, cereals, toast and free-range eggs for breakfast.
A space large enough to accommodate 2 adults and 2 children. There is a king-size bed in the room and a single sofa bed as well as a pull out full size single mattress.
In addition to the ensuite family room, guests have access to a private snug room, for their own personal use, and a kitchen shared with the home owners. There is off street private parking and secure bike storage. It's fine to make use of our kitchen in the evening, if you prefer to make your own meal, rather than eat out.

I grew up in Ouseburn and came back to live here four years ago, so I know the area well. My partner is from Addiscombe in Surrey and came to live in God's Own County 17 years ago. We both enjoy travelling and have been all over the world including China, Japan, America, Australia, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, India and Europe. We are an easy-going, busy, working family. We enjoy cycling and walking and we look forward to welcoming you into our home.
