To the front of the cottage is the double aspect sitting room with distinctive exposed oak beams. There is a second reception room which could happily function as a third bedroom. A downstairs wet room is finished with distinctive grey tiling.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms. The principal bedroom is a beautiful space with high vaulted ceiling and a walk-in dressing room and beyond a super smart bathroom with both bath and walk in shower. The second bedroom again has a vaulted ceiling and a shower room en suite.
A gravel drive to the front of the cottage provides off road parking for several vehicles.
