Inn Cottage is a fabulous detached cottage, set back from the neighbouring village pub. The house offers excellent living space over two floors and has the added benefit of a useful basement, which is ideal as a study or a children's playroom. The house has been updated very recently and showcases a wealth of period details including fireplaces, exposed wall and ceiling timbers, multi paned windows and wood floors.

From the entrance lobby, a door opens to a lovely sitting room with log burner to one side and doors, which lead to the kitchen and the main living/dining room; perfect for parties and entertaining.

The kitchen has recently been redesigned with stylish custom installed units that are complemented by solid wood worktops. At one end is a very useful utility room, which benefits from a stable door to the outside and at the other end of the kitchen, a door leads through to an inner hallway, where a door leads out to the rear garden and steps lead down to the main living room. This room is undoubtedly one of the key features and is truly a wonderfully stylish living room with distinct spaces to both lounge and dine. The focal point is the impressive Inglenook fireplace with a large wood burner taking centre stage!

Two staircases lead up to the first floor, which offers the opportunity to arrange the bedrooms to suit your own family's needs.

The main staircase leads up to 3 of the bedrooms, including the main bedroom and a second staircase leads from a private corridor off the inner hallway to bedroom 2. That said, please note from the floor plan that access from bedroom 1 to bedroom 2 can be offered by way of a door, if required.

Also on the first floor is a separate shower room, which provides ample shower facilities upstairs. It is finished in beautiful natural stone with a toilet and sink, situated adjacent to the master bedroom.

Inn Cottage is approached via a five bar wooden gate, with matching hand gate to side, and over a gravel drive that leads up one side to the pool house.

The front garden is private, laid to lawn and flanked by flower borders and a large hedge to the front.

The rear garden boasts a sunny south easterly orientation and enjoys protected far reaching views over farmland. Once again, mature hedgerows provide a high degree of privacy and seclusion and through the rear hedge, via a wooden gate, the swimming pool can be found. The pool area is very private and has a large terrace, which is perfect for outdoor entertaining. The pretty 'kidney' shaped heated pool features a resistance motor for those with a keen fitness agenda!

To one side stands a fabulous pool house that offers space for both entertaining, or if further guest accommodation is required. The pool house features a separate shower room and a kitchenette.
