The 300 year old, Grade II listed cottage has that quintessential chocolate box look and feel to it.

From the hall doors lead to the Kitchen, Sitting room and Bathroom. The light and roomy KITCHEN was completely refurbished in 2018 with pretty Quaker style units and a very attractive quartz worktop. All the integrated appliances are Neff; there is space for a fridge and dishwasher and the double sink is complete with waste disposal unit. This is a wonderful space for any keen chef and the 'piece de resistance' is a generous LARDER! The SITTING ROOM with it's exposed beams and fabulous inglenook fireplace is enchanting.
