There is a real sense of history about this cottage. From the outside, it is virtually unchanged with shuttered doors opening to reveal the dreamy cottage inside. Inside the property, the front door opens into the living/dining room with its fantastic original brick floor. It has a wood burner to keep you warm on winter nights and a big dining table here is just right for large get togethers. Two of the three bedrooms have double doors that open onto the patio. The fully-fitted kitchen is complete with a dishwasher, microwave and washing machine. The bathroom has both shower and bath. Up a steep flight of steps you’ll find a further twin room on the mezzanine floor, and for further sleep arrangements, one of the sofas converts into a comfortable double bed. Luxury cotton towels are provided for all guests and for your entertainment there is a Smart TV, Wi-Fi and a selection of books and games.
