The spacious sitting/dining room, with French doors to the garden, has a magnificent stone hearth fireplace with gas fire. The kitchen breakfast room, with feature bread oven, opens to the rear and front gardens. On the first floor are three bedrooms all with exposed timbers, one with en suite and a family bathroom. Outside there is off street parking for two cars and a small front garden. To the rear, pretty cottage gardens are enclosed by a stone wall, with a raised lawn area and timber garden store.
