The wide bay window facing west is perfect for viewing an often spectacular sunset and the east facing window affords more views across fields and moorland.
The library area and gallery at one end, overlook the ground floor kitchen/dining room.
The kitchen has a wood block floor and well equipped cooking area, which includes a microwave oven, gas cooker, with 4-burner hob, main oven and grill/2nd oven), 4-slot electric toaster, cafetière, teapot and plentiful supply of cookware and tableware.
The solid elm dining table seats up to eight. We favour recycling of all suitable materials and there are containers for Glass, Paper & Tins, plus bins for compost and non-recyclable domestic waste.
The massive, original fireplace with its granite supports and lintel is still in place as a reminder of earlier days. We have reluctantly said goodbye to the solid fuel stove still visible in the photo, and are actively researching the best environmentally friendly replacement.
Meanwhile Bal Cottage is kept warm with a choice of oil-filled and convector type electric heaters.
The spacious upstairs living room has picture windows on two sides including a wide bay-window facing west, perfect for viewing the often spectacular sunsets.
Well furnished, with a comfortable old fashioned three-piece suite, side tables, a card table and stacking chairs, well stocked library and book shelves, plus a Morsø Squirrel multi-fuel stove, (coal and/or logs), for cosy evenings at home.
