An impressive dwelling on a manageable scale benefitting from many original features including exposed wooden beams, inglenook fireplaces, flagstone floors and a log burner.

The entrance hall leads to a beautifully light and spacious country kitchen with floor base units. The French doors open out to a pretty patio ideal for alfresco dining. The kitchen leads through to the dining room/snug which is a well-proportioned space for a large dining table with a Jetmaster open fire and sitting area.

The charm continues to the first floor where you will find plenty of character in all four double bedrooms with their wooden latch doors and exposed beams. The master bedroom benefits from its own shower room. The three further bedrooms are all doubles and to complete the first floor is the large family bathroom with a separate shower.
In season the front of the house is covered with a stunning wisteria. The cottage benefits from extensive mature gardens, consisting of a formal landscaped front garden with pretty flower beds. To the rear of the property is a pretty patio area accessed from both the kitchen and dining rooms where you can enjoy the southerly aspect with a large private lawned garden surrounded by an eclectic mix of trees and shrubs whilst also benefitting from a pretty summerhouse, greenhouse and fruit cage.
