Rural and tranquil, this detached cottage is beautifully furnished and decorated to make an attractive home from home.

Entering this single-storey accommodation, you immediately feel relaxed and at ease. The front door leads through to the stunning open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, a fantastically airy and light space thanks to the high ceilings, large windows and French doors. The lounge has beautiful soft furnishings, a Smart TV with Netflix, DVD, iPod dock and beautiful wood burner, and the lovely dining table is big enough to seat six. The fitted kitchen is comprised of an electric oven and hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge with freezer compartment, washing machine and tumble dryer.
