Close by is the lounge; this spacious communal area has ample comfortable seating, a TV/DVD, iPod dock, and a hi-fi. Central to the space is a wood burner that comes with a basket of logs. The kitchen/dining room comes equipped with an electric oven and hob, a washing machine, a tumble dryer, a dishwasher, and a fridge/freezer. Also on the ground floor is a double bedroom with a zip-and-link bed (which can be made up as a twin by arrangement in advance). It has an en-suite shower room with WC too. On the first floor, down a narrow hallway and ducking through a doorway, is the other double bedroom which has a sloping period beamed ceiling which gives the bedroom old world charm and character. There is a bathroom with WC close by for convenience.

Through the French doors that lead outside, there is a pretty cottage garden with a patio and a BBQ which is fully enclosed and dog friendly. There is parking for two cars to the side of the cottage (there are a few steps with a hand rail leading down to the front door).

A lovely holiday for our family. Well looked after especially with the Cakes. Everything we needed was there. Could not fault it as it fitted all of the descriptions perfectly. Upstairs not ideal for 6 foot plus Giants but OK for us. The area was perfect even when the weather was not quite so perfect.
