Numerous character-style features include exposed beams, cottage doors, window seats, window shutters, exposed stone, stone fireplace with multi-fuel stove and flagstone style flooring to the sitting/dining room. The property also has gas fired central heating with a fairly modern boiler, fitted kitchen with oak-style fronted units plus electric oven and gas hob (other white goods are available) and part sealed unit windows.

On the ground floor a stable front door leads into a good-sized sitting/dining room featuring a large stone fireplace and window seat with shutters, kitchen/breakfast room with fitted units and appliances, bathroom and rear porch. On the first a landing leads to a good sized main bedrooms and second bedroom.

The cottage will appeal to a whole range of buyers, either as a permanent home, second home, holiday letting or buy-to-let investment.
