To one side of the kitchen is a small courtyard with a covered well. Adjacent is a door to the family bathroom, with a high level skylight.

Stairs rise from the rear of the hall to a spacious and sunny landing, with a wonderful view across the valley to the front, shared by the two double bedrooms to either side, both of which have fitted wardrobes. The principal bedroom has a vaulted en suite bathroom. An enclosed panelled staircase rises from the landing to the second floor which has two charming eaves bedrooms to either side of the second floor landing.
