The house itself is charming. Beautiful gardens and nice large rooms. The kitchen is well equipped and perfect for entertaining. However in the colder months the house is very cold. Fireplace in the living room (and too much furniture to move around in) kitchen has a separate heater and one bedroom upstairs has a heater. The other two must rely on an electric heater in the hallway that plugs into one of the bedrooms...thus if you want heat you can't close the bedroom doors. On the plus side the location is idea for exploring the countryside. In late spring, summer and fall it would be great but don't go in winter.
