The well-equipped kitchen/diner ensures all facilities required for holiday dining are available including an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and to enjoy the resulting cuisine, a dining table.

Completing the ground floor is a bathroom with shower over bath and WC. The inner hallway has stairs to the first floor, following these up guests will find a spacious bedroom with super-king-size bed with TV. The exposed beams and timbers continue through to the twin bedroom which can only be accessed through the first bedroom.

The grounds of the cottage are as equally charming as the cottage itself and those who enjoy relaxing outside will be spoilt for choice. The decking area, with garden furniture, sun loungers and Lay-Z-Spa, in which to soak away any stress, enjoys uninterrupted views across farmland and is the perfect spot to watch the world go by. At the rear you will also find the three acre paddock which you have access to.
