South Cottage sitting room and hearth

In 2007 we took our courage in both hands and knocked out the 1960s fireplace and the rubble infill behind it. The massive chimney that has stood there for 200 years was revealed in all its glory, along with evidence of how the adjoining bread oven was connected. We've installed a modern woodburning stove, which, even without the central heating on, keeps the room comfortably warm on the coldest night.
