From the main sitting room, a feature spiral staircase leads up to the first floor landing, which gives access to the master bedroom with vaulted ceiling, a second bedroom, also with vaulted ceiling, and a useful cloakroom/WC.

Downstairs, from the main sitting room, a lockable door leads to the study/bedroom four (currently used as a guest bedroom) with a spiral staircase rising to a further twin bedroom. Adjoining bedroom four there is a further sitting room with a shower room and second kitchen leading off. The property has undergone extensive renovation and upgrading by the current vendors, creating a delightful country home, combining modern country style whilst retaining much character and charm. There is a real feeling of light and airy rooms, unusual for a cottage and all the rooms have lovely garden/countryside views.

The house is set back from the lane with pretty front flower gardens and is surrounded on all sides by gardens and pasture, bordered by natural hedging, which extends behind the property, giving privacy and controlling the view.
