The cottage is believed to be about 150 yrs old and retains many charming original features. It is fully double glazed & has gas central heating. The front door is reached by a flight of 5 steps so we don't recommend the cottage if there are mobility issues. Inside, the ceilings and doors are low in places, and there are some changes in level which need care. All part of the charm!
It adjoins National Trust land known as the Byes Riverside Park through which the river Sid passes close by on its way down to the sea about 1km distant. The accommodation is on 3 floors. 7 windows in the end elevation give fine rural views over the river valley. On the ground floor there is a well equipped kitchen, a small dining room, a comfortable sitting room with woodburning stove leading to a conservatory with with a round table and Lloyd Loom chairs - very suitable for meals or just relaxing. Outside there is a south facing sheltered patio and lawned garden with views to the river and across the valley. On the first floor is a charming bedroom with windows east & south, a bathroom with electric shower, bath, basin & toilet. Adjacent is another toilet with wash basin in which a washing machine is located. A flight of stairs leads to the second bedroom which also has 2 windows with lovely views.
At night it is often possible to hear the river if the windows are open.
