In the heyday of the Manor, this was where hats and coats were brushed off and restored to tiptop condition. Nowadays it is a comfortable apartment from which to explore the Manor’s 15-acre grounds or the nearby mountains, beaches and castles. Once again the original features are complemented by comfortable and stylish furniture and brightened up with a tasteful use of colour.
The spacious kitchen /diner with its original slate floor and glazed and buff brick wall, again with induction hob, combi microwave/grill, fridge and dishwasher leads to a generous bathroom with a large shower and a bedroom with a double bed at one end and a comfortable seating area at the other. The wall-mounted TV/DVD can be viewed from either end.
