Step into the property through the well-equipped kitchen. Beyond lies the impressive living area, boasting a high glass roof and windows the length of the property framing the garden and peaks beyond, and furnished with plush sofas. Combined with a family dining area, this space serves as an ideal retreat for unwinding after a family meal. You will find two bedrooms off the lounge with one having far-reaching views, the other is at the front of the building overlooking the shared courtyard; continuing down the corridor you'll discover the third bedroom with views. All three bedrooms have en-suite facilities. This cottage seamlessly blends historic allure with contemporary comfort, providing a delightful haven within the picturesque surroundings of the Victorian garden.

Venturing outdoors, you can truly immerse yourself in the awe-inspiring scenery.
