The Lounge

This view of the lounge features the fireplace that looks and feels like a dry stone wall, the three-seater settee, which is covered in William Morris’s green willow bough, cotton fabric, a teak coffee table with a tiled top, and a cream wool carpet over iroko wood block flooring.The lounge, which is adjacent to the breakfast room, has two south–facing bay windows, and another door to the library/passage where we also keep the microwave in case you wish to use it. Next to it is a sink unit with a hot and mains supply, plus a tap for filtered water, which is ideal for drinking and tea making.

An armchair and footstool fill a cosy corner near the radiator and a sunny bay window, which has curtains to match the suite.  A small tree, with variegated leaves, and a nest of teak tables are on either side of the armchair.


A unique feature of the room is the chimneybreast that looks like a dry stone wall. This houses an open log fire in the winter, with an electric alternative for the summer, plus a radiator for background warmth.


Looking to the left down the lounge to a pair of glazed doors opposite the fireplace, there is a leather chair and footstool from Ikea and an upright piano.

The glazed doors at the other end of the lounge lead into a dining room, where breakfast can also be served.

The piano is tuned regularly and we love to hear it played, or you are welcome to read a book from our library, watch the TV, a video or DVD, or just simply relax whilst listening to a CD or the fire crackling.
