Cooking and Dining

There is a superb dining kitchen fitted with modern beech units and granite work surfaces. It is fully stocked with all the equipment you need to enjoy a self catered group holiday with the added comfort of an integrated dishwasher, washing machine, American style fridge freezer with ice maker and a microwave. There is a Range master stove, with double ovens and five ring gas hob. In the dining area there is a large table and seating for more informal meals.

For alfresco dining, you can step out through the double French doors onto an elevated decked terrace with contemporary glass screening to provide outdoor seating and views to the rear over looking the enclosed garden and woodland beyond.

For more formal meals, you can enjoy dining together in the separate dining room with a table and seating that can accommodate all guests together.

Living Space

On entering the property, you are met with an impressive 18ft reception hallway which forms the centre of the house, furnished with black slate flooring and a beautiful oak staircase. Tucked away in the corner is a useful downstairs cloakroom/WC and space to store muddy boots and hang coats.

Certainly the most striking feature of Roslyn House is the sophisticated 22ft lounge which provides masses of comfortable space for guest to relax in. After a day exploring The Peaks, you can relax in the vast room with the warmth of an open fire creating a cosy atmosphere (please supply your own logs and coal). The lounge is equipped with a quality LCD TV and sound system. There are French doors opening onto the decked terrace at the rear of the house.

There is an additional TV room/sitting room, again equipped with a quality LCD TV, sofa bed ( allowing the option for extra one/two guests on a sofa bed) and comfortable seating. This room also works well as a play room for families too.

Garden and Outdoor Space

Outside to the rear of the property is a mature garden with lawn and flowering borders surrounded by low fencing and hedges (not really suitable for ball games!). Tucked away in the corner is a further decked area with outside seating (in addition to the terrace) and BBQ facilities (please bring your own charcoal.)

To the side of the house is another grassed area with garden seating.  Secure storage under house provides a lockable cellar with space for up to 10 bikes. To the front is a driveway with private parking for 4 cars.

Due to it's residential location Roslyn House is not suitable for hen and stag groups - we have plenty of other properties we can recommend!
