Full description

Zoe adds ‘We love our cottage; it’s so cosy and welcoming with some quaint features.  The roll top bath and underfloor heating give a little bit of luxury, while the aspect of the sitting room is so characterful.  The area is friendly yet quiet and we love walks up the lane, through the churchyard and into the parkland by the Forest Centre.  The garden is a perfect size for busy professionals and is a delightfully sunny spot for eating breakfast or evening meals in the summer.  We have enjoyed ten very happy years here and will be sad to leave.’
