The kitchen has an oil-fired Aga, dishwasher, fridge, a farmhouse table, and a large sink under the south-facing window. There is a downstairs toilet, and a separate utility room with washing machine, tumbler dryer, freezer, microwave, oil fired boiler and large store cupboard.

The others share a bathroom and shower room. Outside, there are tables and benches in a choice of settings, including a listed ruin in which there is also an attractive flower and herb garden. The rest of the garden is natural, with grass paths between trees and bushes and wild flowers, an orchard and a large open grass area. A swing, hammock, rope ladder and knotted rope hang from mature beech trees to the side of a converted barn (which is used by the owners when in residence).
