You enter the house from the parking area to the front, into the warmth of the sociable kitchen/dining room. There is a large dining table and eight chairs and a comfy sofa to relax on with the morning paper or sip on a glass of something delicious whilst the cooks work their magic in the kitchen. The modern kitchen is well equipped and features granite work tops, retro style fridge freezer, integral microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer machine, electric cooker, television and DVD player. The room is flooded with natural light from the two sets of doors to the front and the window to the rear and alongside the sofa at one end there are two chairs at the other, looking out over the fields beyond.

Also on the ground floor is a large bathroom, which features a full size bath and separate walk-in shower, WC and wash hand basin. Across the hallway is a door that leads out to the enclosed rear deck with lovely views out over the saltmarsh beyond.
