On entering this former forestry workers' cottage, you will find yourself in the spacious hallway. This leads into the large open-plan lounge/diner. The attractive and welcoming lounge allows you to sit back and enjoy the wood burner effect electric fire, TV, DVD and hi-fi. At the other end of this light, airy and spacious room is the dining area, perfect for family meals. Moving into the stylishly designed kitchen, you will find everything you might need including an electric oven with hob, microwave and fridge. Beyond the kitchen is a shower room with WC - perfect for cleaning up after a day’s mountain biking. There is also a large utility room with a washing machine and freezer. Heading upstairs you will find three cosy bedrooms, all of which enjoy beautiful views. There’s a roomy and comfy double bedroom, a light and comfortable twin bedroom, and a charming single room. The upstairs bathroom is complete with shower over the bath and WC.
Moving outside, the large south-facing garden is enclosed (although there is a stile if you wish to explore the woods behind the cottage) and offers spacious lawns for children (and dogs) to play safely. There is garden furniture on the patio, where you can sit back and relax in the tranquillity of the location. There is ample private parking for three cars adjacent to the cottage.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
