Barn Cottage is a unique barn conversion with most of the accommodation on the ground floor, including a lovely sitting room with high ceiling, newly fitted kitchen, long sun room, two bedrooms and a bathroom. On the first floor is a galleried landing with useful studio/office/occasional bedroom.

Outside are excellent, fully enclosed gardens to the side and rear, very well stocked, sunny, private and full of delightful plants, shrubs and flowers. They partly adjoin the open fields of East Hill with some lovely outlooks. There is a large garage and plenty of parking space.
