The kitchen is at the heart of every home, and Murmur-y-Don has a large, cheerful kitchen packed with everything you need, from preparing family meals to fine dining.

There’s a big Firebird, a range cooker which is like an Aga except it does the hot water and central heating as well; an electric oven, a microwave, a large retro fridge-freezer, a dishwasher and a washing machine.

Off the kitchen is the pantry/larder, with a cool slate cupboard top for food. This is one of the only two rooms in the house without a sea view, we’re afraid.

We’ve stayed in holiday lets where they didn’t even provide salt or sugar. Not here — there’s a whole range of condiments, herbs and spices on the shelf above the Firebird. And in the herb bed outside the kitchen window you’ll find fresh parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
