It is a charming three-storey cottage able to accommodate up to six adults and two children in four bedrooms. On the ground floor is a kitchen with good-sized dining table and range style oven, and a large comfortable sitting room. On the first floor are three bedrooms and a family bathroom, with a further double bedroom on the second floor. The cottage retains many original features including exposed beams and narrow staircases and benefits from an enclosed courtyard area to the rear and off road parking for one car.

One pet is welcome, and two small dogs are possible by arrangement.

Please Note: From September 2018, the bathroom is being refurbished; and the bath will be replaced with a shower cubicle.
