    You will have your own bedroom with Bed, Storage, TV,DVD and Tea/coffee stuff in room. It's a shared bathroom and toilet on the first floor, your room will be on ground floor. The house is not perfect as we have only just started to renovate !! I will do most of the meals but you can help yourself as well ( shared kitchen ) We are not vegan or veggie but have been in past ,so can cook it.
    The house is on the main road in the town ,so can get noisy at peek times ,but lovely in the gardens.
