To the left of the staircase is the fully equipped kitchen and dining area and to the right overlooking Kinblethmont gardens is the comfortable seating area. Upstairs there are two en suite bedrooms. The double bedroom has a double bed and an en suite shower room, the twin room has an ensuite bathroom with bath. The beds in the twin room can be attached together if required (please ask). At the front of the house is the parking area and a private terrace with outdoor furniture and BBQ. The surrounding woodland and estate (excepting Kinblethmont House private garden) makes a wonderful extended garden for you to explore. The free WiFi is a popular addition in this wonderful self-catering accommodation.
