Brimming with charm and character, this beautifully presented cottage has been sympathetically restored. In keeping with the building’s heritage, natural materials, such as wood and stone, are used throughout, as are the original features that have been incorporated into the overall look. Neutral tones bring a relaxing atmosphere to each room, whilst traditional-style fixtures and fittings add class.
Stepping into the hall, you’ll find the flag-stoned floor is the perfect place to discard muddy boots and coats. Down the step and at the end of the hall is the cosy, welcoming lounge – the ideal place for snuggling up of an evening in front of the wood burner. The hub of the house is the farmhouse –style kitchen/diner, which is well-equipped with everything you’ll need to cater for you and your guests. The dining table offers plenty of seating for everyone to dine or socialise together.
