Internally, the cottage has a light and airy feel being freshly and tastefully decorated, offering a downstairs shower room as well as an upstairs bathroom. Character features include quarry tile floors, an inglenook style fireplace with multi-fuel stove in the sitting room, and open beams. Equally the recently re-fitted kitchen is well equipped with an excellent range of appliances. External doors and windows are upvc double-glazed.
