On the ground floor, the well-appointed shaker style kitchen is fitted with both base and wall cabinetry providing good storage, together with granite worksurface offering ample preparation space, and a range of integrated appliances including an AGA oven.

There are three further reception rooms; a formal dining room with feature fireplace and wood-burning stove, with a view over the front gardens, a delightful and sizeable, triple aspect sitting room with fireplace and French doors opening to the rear terrace, and access to the dual aspect study/snug with fitted furniture, providing an ideal spot for working from home. A cloakroom with wc and utility area completes the ground floor.
On the first floor, all of the bedrooms are light, bright and enjoy a pleasant outlook over the gardens; there is a sizeable principal bedroom with dressing area, a bank of fitted wardrobes and an en suite bathroom. There are three further double bedrooms, one of which has an impressive vaulted ceiling with exposed beams. A further single bedroom and a separate family bathroom complete the accommodation.
Outside: Orchard Cottage enjoys a generous plot, surrounded by the lovingly landscaped and established gardens, with herbaceous borders and specimen planting. The cottage is approached via a brick-paved pathway that leads through the pretty front gardens, to the porch. A paved terrace spans the width of the house to the rear providing a wonderful, private space for outdoor entertaining whilst enjoying the view over the gardens to the rear.
There is driveway parking for several vehicles to the front of the property.
