The kitchen is well stocked with modern appliances (microwave,dishwasher, juicer, food processor)  and lots of cookery books! . We use this room a lot in the summer as it is lovely and bright. A separate utility room off the kitchen has a freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. Our sitting room has a lovely open fire and we have lots of turf in the garage to keep the home fires burning! (There is also Oil Fired Central Heating). We have a piano in this room along with T.V, video player and DVD player. There are lots of books throughout the house . In the garage we have tennis racquets, basketballs, footballs and another large freezer . There is also a full-size new table tennis table in the garage.
