Whilst the property has been used for equestrian purposes for several years there is no land with the property, however the vendors have rented land close by and being in a rural area there is a good possibility of land being available to rent if required.

The detached cottage has an oil fired Rayburn cooker/heater in the kitchen and also a wood burner stove in the sitting room fireplace.

The first floor features wood floor boards throughout and offers three bedrooms, one with slay ceiling on the front elevation and bathroom. Bridge House is full of charm and character having its age showing in some parts which would benefit by some repair and improvement.

The property is best accessed from the rear, there are entrances via the Conservatory with door into the Kitchen/Living Room with slate flooring, stone walls, open beam ceiling and open fireplace which houses the oil fired Rayburn cooker/heater and supplying domestic hot water. There is a white Belfast sink and the room is large enough to accommodate a table and chairs. The Sitting Room has a stone fireplace one end with fitted wood burner stove, exposed beams and two windows with southerly aspect to the rear. There is a second ground floor Reception Room with beamed ceiling and door at the front which at present the owners use as a fourth bedroom.
