Upon entering this deceptively spacious cottage you are welcomed into a large, practical boot room, perfect for storing your outdoor gear.

The heart of the home is the expansive open-plan living area, where a modern kitchen flows into a dining space and seating area, with lovely views over the beautiful rear garden, perfect for family gatherings and entertaining guests. There is a separate cosy lounge featuring a wood-burning stove, and adjacent to the living area there is a dedicated study providing a quiet retreat for work or reading.

This enchanting cottage-style garden is a sprawling haven of natural beauty and meticulous design, fully secure for dogs to roam safely. The lush, expansive lawn provides a verdant canvas, ideal for leisurely strolls and outdoor activities. Neatly trimmed box hedges frame pathways and garden sections, lending structure and elegance to the landscape.

Interspersed throughout are vibrant wildflower areas, where native blooms attract butterflies and bees, creating a lively, colourful tapestry that changes with the seasons. These wildflower patches add a touch of untamed beauty to the garden, contrasting beautifully with the more manicured sections.

Please note there is also an uncovered pond in the garden so please ensure that children and dogs are supervised when in the garden.
