With an open-plan living space, this cottage has been designed with easy living in mind. In the kitchen, there is an electric oven and gas hob, fridge, freezer, washing machine and dishwasher. Dine at the breakfast bar before relaxing on the comfy sofa to watch a film. Patio doors open to the outside, allowing light and fresh air to flow in when the weather is warm, and if it's chilly, you still get to enjoy the view. Upstairs, the double bedroom is wonderfully light with plenty of storage. With two picture windows and two skylights, wake to the sunlight pouring in. The sofa under the Velux window is the perfect spot to escape with a good book, whilst the stylish bathroom contains a rainfall-effect shower over the bath.
Head outside from the living space to find a bistro table and chairs in the rear patio garden. Relax and unwind in the private Lazy spa hot tub soaking up the lovely countryside views. The owners of the cottage also have a field at the end of their garden whih guests would be welcome to use.
