Beyond the kitchen is an office with fitted furniture. Also accessed from the kitchen is a stone flagged staircase which leads down to the lower ground floor with two good double bedrooms and a three piece shower room. The hall on the lower ground floor lends itself well to a utility area having plumbing for a washing machine.

On the first floor are four further good bedrooms with lovely views (two of which enjoy en suite shower rooms) plus a three piece bathroom.

Acorns Cottage
