A door leads through to the superb refurbished farmhouse kitchen / breakfast room with built-in appliances, Belfast sink, Aga and separate WC, with the conservatory completing the ground floor. Rising to the first floor, via the granite staircase, you will find the dual aspect master bedroom with a contemporary style ensuite shower room, a further three good sized bedrooms and four-piece family bathroom suite.

Rookery Brook Cottage is approached by a sweeping hand-cut granite driveway which bridges the private stream at each end. There is ample parking space to the front and side of the property where you will find the double garage with studio above providing a number of uses. A main feature of the gardens is the tumbling moorland stream that passes through via a number of picturesque waterfalls.
