The open plan living space of  Flossy Brook has the cosiness of warm wood flooring and underfloor heating, with plenty of room for relaxing and dining. This space is flooded with natural light from the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the patio and countryside beyond. At one end is a well equipped kitchen with all you need to rustle up a delicious meal, and at the other end, big fat sofas to curl up on, and a woodburning stove for added warmth in the chillier months. Just imagine, coming back in Autumn or Winter from a country walk and gathering round with steaming mugs of frothy hot chocolate...

The hand crafted kitchen is homely, with quirky touches, and because it's a good size and kitted out with up-to-the-minute gadgets you can easily knock up a scrumptious feast; or how about a holiday bake-off? You might even be tempted to start washing-up by hand and do a bit of kitchen sink dreaming with the lovely outlook over the wilfdlife area!

The bedrooms at Flossy Brook are all very calm and restful with a blend of calming neutral tones and splashes of well-co-ordinated colour that works really well. On the ground floor, Bedroom 1 has an ample en suite wet-room, and the hallway leads through to the swimming pool.

Stairs rise from the hallway to Bedrooms 4 and 5, with zip and link beds which can be arranged as superking or twins; just let us know what you want and leave the rest to us. Bedroom 5 also has a day bed which can be used as additional twin beds. Between these bedrooms is a spacious shared bathroom. Another flight of stairs rises from the living room and leads to a mezzanine landing which has a day bed that can be adapted to twin sleeping arrangements (charged extra). Either side of this is Bedroom 2, with ensuite facilities, and Bedroom 3 with an adjoining bathroom; both of these rooms have zip and link beds giving superking or twin options.

The open plan living space at Flossy Brook was made for entertaining; a big dining table to one end, big inviting sofas to the other; tiled throughout with underfloor heating, it's such a bright and airy room with natural daylight pouring in through those full height windows. You can have a celebratory feast here, or canapes and champagne - throw open the French doors and you can spill out onto the patio; and don't forget - on our Extras page you'll find tried and tested caterers who will come in and do all the work for you!

A key feature of Flossy Brook is the good sized indoor pool room which is accessed from the hallway. There's room for loungers and floor to ceiling windows look out over the patio and garden. The patio is south facing and quite a suntrap; a great spot for morning coffee or for a drink at sunset, and of course, perfect for barbecues, with plenty of outdoor furniture. There's a play area for the children or they can let off steam running around on the grass; nature lovers will appreciate the interesting wildlife area which is being established; butterflies and bees flit about the flowers, dragonflies skim over the pond (fenced off for safety, but young children should always be supervised).
