The ground floor includes a large heavily beamed living room complete with inglenook fireplace, wood-burning stove & a bread oven and there is a separate dining room (with fantastic doors!) and a kitchen breakfast room (under 3 years old) which includes an old fired AGA, oven & a 2 ring induction hob.  There is also an attached larder/utility area & a cloakroom with WC.

The main garden lies beyond and is laid to level lawn, interspersed by borders and mature shrubs, trees and flowers. To the side of the cottage is an off-road parking area (8.1m x 7.4m) suitable for 4 vehicles.

    The formal garden is bordered along one side by a picket fence leading to a bridge over the stream to a small copse, to the far end of which is an open fronted LINHAY BARN (23′ x 15′). There is also a five bar gate to the linhay from the lane.
