Timber and tiles have been used throughout for the flooring which both retain the character of the cottage as well as provide for a clean house. The cottage sleeps 7, with the ground floor adapted for wheelchair access. There is free WIFI internet access installed in the cottage with excellent reception.There is a shed alongside, with chest freezer and ample space for outdoor gear. Situated on 1 acre, a small stream, field and trees make this a very peaceful property.
