Comfortable leather sofas arranged on a large rug in the centre of the room make a comfortable spot to relax with a book or watch the large flat screen television. A wooden bar and an open stone fireplace add to the welcoming atmosphere. There is also a sofa bed in this room. It is a very versatile room to use at any time of year.
