    About this property

    • The Green House provides holiday accommodation mainly at ground floor level with a principle first floor dormer suite for a maximum of six guests in total.

      The property is built of block construction with silicone render and cedar cladding in places under a pitch slate room with aluminium eves troughs and spouting and modern grey aluminium powder-coated double glazing. It has been built and designed with sustainable energy in mind and benefits from photovoltaic solar panels providing hot water and an air source heat pump providing underfloor heating.

      Internally the accommodation has been thoughtfully laid out allowing a light, ambient flow around the property. The modern open-plan living space is flooded with natural light coming in from the large sliding doors and Velux roof lights.

      The stylish fully-fitted kitchen has streamline base units and a large central island, all with solid oak work surfaces and integrated appliances. The family lounge area is at the far end of the room with wood burning stove. From the entrance, there is also a utility room with WC.

      A corridor lit with natural light from a glazed external door and feature integrated night lights leads through to two double bedrooms on the ground floor, one with en suite wet room/shower room and the other with en suite bathroom, both with solid oak wider than average internal recessed sliding doors, thoughtfully designed enabling the maximum use of space in the property.

      A store room is situated at the foot of the stairs which houses the water tanks connected to the air source heat pump. A staircase leads up to the principle king suite with separate lounge area leading through to a large dormer bedroom with views of the open countryside and benefitting from an en suite bathroom.

      To the rear of the cottage, the landing opens out onto the rear garden and steps down to the Beachcomber six person hot tub with surround decking and rear access gate. Access is also provided to an external store and the air source heat pump.

      Externally, there is ample space for outdoor dining and relaxing in the south facing courtyard to the front and side of the property.

      The business is operating at a good level with a strong trading history and advance bookings in place. Income is derived from the letting of the cottage which is currently fully managed via the booking agent Sykes Cottages. The professional booking system allows for a guest to make an online booking with ease with the booking agent being available to assist if required, therefore avoiding the requirement for the owner's involvement in the booking process.
