Set against a backdrop of towering trees, this brightly painted cottage offers light and airy accommodation, decorated in neutral shades throughout, with bright accents of colour. Pull through the gate and onto the driveway. Entering via the porch where there is room to remove walking boots and outdoor clothing, step through the front door and into the property. Unpack your provisions in the kitchen where you will find plenty of cupboard and worktop space. Fully equipped with an electric cooker and hob, microwave, fridge, freezer and washing machine, you will have everything you need for a home-from-home stay. A door and one step lead from the kitchen to the small sunroom – a lovely spot to curl up with a coffee and enjoy the views across the garden. Enjoy your meals in the cosy dining room where the farmhouse-style table comfortably seats all guests. The lounge is filled with natural light from the large windows looking out across the gardens and is a pleasant space to relax after a day of exploration. Snuggle up on the comfortable reclining sofa and enjoy your favourite programme on SkyTV. The generous bathroom is on the ground floor with WC and shower over bath, perfect for a long soak before bedtime. When it’s time to retire, head upstairs to the two pretty bedrooms, both with sloping ceilings and enjoying lovely views.
