The lounge dining area
 
Light, spacious and comfortable with the focus on relaxation, the living area has a small work table inside the front door (with plenty of power points), a modest book and video library, plenty of chairs and a lounge suitable for the siesta. A small sound system is installed. The dining table made from recycled cattle-yard timber by a local craftsman sits 6 and the small worktable can be moved so that seating 8 is easy. 

In the summer, the house opens up to become a sea-breezeway and on the hottest days, is comfortable inside. In the winter, the gas heater is very efficient and the wood stove can be used (although messy to clean).
