The cosy yet bright interior of this bolthole will help whisk you into holiday mode as you return from your adventures in the great outdoors each day - or maybe slow down the pace and relax inside this charming cottage and feel at home amongst creature comforts. Open-plan living makes the most of the space in this single-storey property. The kitchen, lounge and diner together form the hub of the home where you can sprawl on the sofa, cook up a storm and dine together. The lounge area houses a wood burner effect gas fire to keep you warm on chilly evenings as you curl up in front of the TV or with a good book. The light kitchen offers a welcoming space for all hands on deck to get involved with mealtimes before you serve up and raise a toast at the table which comfortably seats four. Both the double and twin bedrooms are treated to en-suite shower rooms for ease freshening up in the mornings. Rise and shine in these pleasantly decorated rooms and open the blinds for views across the charming grounds.
The attention to detail continues outside, sip a mug of hot coffee on the patio for an al fresco start to the day or fire up the BBQ in the evenings for a summer feast. The cottage sits in the beautifully cared for grounds of the owner’s house, so you can bask in the sun on your private lawn and listen to the babbling of the river.
