"Where does the smoke go....?"
The living room, was originally two rooms, but was knocked through in 1920 to create a large open space which is the heart of the house. The emphasis in the room is on comfort, with sofas, armchairs, books and games making it a great room to relax in. With a real open fire and 'spinning' window above it [so called, because a window in place of a chimney-breast gives direct light to sew and spin] there is space to seat large numbers. At the other end of the room there is more seating around the beautiful Westmorland Slate coffee table and a cupboard full of games, jigsaws and all forms of entertainment.
There are french windows in the centre of the room that lead straight out onto the upper lawn.
