Ardgowan combines modern comforts with a traditional style. Full central heating and double glazing means the house remains cosy even in the winter months while its sunny aspect makes the most of warmer weather.

The ground floor features a spacious sitting room with French doors opening onto the garden. A living flame gas fire, Freeview TV, DVD player and DVD library ensures cosy and entertaining evenings. For meals, there is a choice of a formal dining room or more casual breakfast room. The well-equipped kitchen has a 5 ring gas hob, an electric double oven, dishwasher, large American-style fridge freezer and microwave while the utility room houses the washing machine and dryer. A study with a cupboard full of board games and a handy cloakroom complete the amenities on this floor.

Upstairs, each bedroom has its own bath or shower facilities: a large master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and super king size bed, a second bedroom with a shower ensuite and king size bed and a third bedroom with two single beds and a separate family bathroom and shower. In addition, a room interconnecting with the master bedroom has a wooden cot and toys including a play kitchen.  Linen and towels are included.

Outside, the attractive enclosed garden at the rear of the house gives a safe space for children to play while the terrace makes a sheltered spot for al fresco dining and relaxing. There is private off-road parking for up to 3 cars.  No smoking or pets permitted.

WiFi is provided for guests use and, since mobile reception can be patchy in this area, a landline telephone is available for incoming, local and emergency calls. Our housekeeper lives locally so is on hand if required. Guests can also pre-book a chef for a special occasion or ask for home cooked meals to be delivered.
