Stepping in to the property the first room is a lovely romantic studio style bedroom/lounge with double bed, vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, TV, DVD and a cosy wood burner. A step down then takes you into a characterful hallway with original stone floor, and accessed via this there is a lovely contemporary country style bathroom with hand-held shower over roll-top bath, separate shower and WC. Towards the rear of the property, there is a beautifully light and airy kitchen/diner and this is well-equipped with a gas oven and hob, microwave, fridge with ice compartment and washing machine.

Heading outside there is a delightful enclosed gravelled patio with seating to the front, and an enclosed gravelled patio with garden furniture, charcoal BBQ and unfenced pond to the rear.
