To the side of the house is a long gated driveway which extends to a car port with a storage bay ideal for logs and garden furniture. The cottage benefits from oil fired central heating, wood burning stove and PVCu double glazed windows and doors. The charming and homely accommodation comprises of garden room, kitchen, snug, morning room and bathroom. To the first floor are two bedrooms plus a further study/ bedroom three.
