Front entrance

A white picket fence encloses the front garden and the property is approached via a cobbled path, hand laid with stones from the original cottage floor. The front door leads to the entrance porch which has plenty of room for coats and boots.

Sitting Room

18' 0'' x 12' 6'' (5.495m x 3.808m)

The inner front door opens into this warm, comfortable sitting room with a window to the side and French doors to the conservatory. Floors are stripped, natural wood and the focal point is the large exposed brick fireplace and wood burner set on the slate hearth.


11' 10'' x 7' 11'' (3.603m x 2.416m)

Bright and sunny this conservatory could be a craft room, sun room, garden room or all of the above and more. It certainly catches the sun and is perfect for sitting and watching the birds in the pretty cottage garden.

Kitchen/Dining Room

16' 8'' x 12' 9'' (5.068m x 3.875m)

An irregular shaped room with dual aspect windows to the front and rear of the property. The kitchen units are handmade oak with roll top surfaces, built in electric oven and induction hob and integrated fridge. There is cleverly fitted larder storage and additional storage under the stairs. The floor is a warm terracotta tile which also goes through the adjacent utility room which houses space and plumbing for a washing machine and Belfast sink.

Stairs rise from the sitting room to the first floor landing with doors off to....

Bedroom One

17' 3'' x 10' 11'' (5.257m x 3.335m)

This is a fabulous room with windows to the front and rear of the property and views for miles. The perfect window seat to watch the sky changing or curl up with a book.

Bedroom Two

10' 10'' x 8' 7'' (3.302m x 2.628m)

This is a clever idea, the double bedroom overlooking the rear garden is accessed through a versatile area ....

Dressing Room

6' 0'' x 6' 4'' (1.823m x 1.936m)

I've called this a dressing room but it could easily be a study or craft room.

Outside Area

Outside, the property is set in lovely gardens and grounds with the entire plot extending to about 1.5 acres, including the cottage garden, two paddocks and a well tended substantial vegetable plot. A semi circular walled alcove is set into the bank to provide a sheltered seating area making the most of the valley views. In addition are several useful garden sheds and stores, and a versatile parking area for numerous vehicles including caravans, trailers, boats etc. The garden immediately to the rear of the cottage enjoys much privacy and shelter and is delightfully and naturally presented and includes a substantial wood store.
