Semi-detached new barn conversion cottage in a very quiet area. The cottage sleeps 5 comfortably but could sleep 6 with a extra bed which could be put up in a bedroom, if needed, if asked in advance, this will mean there will be an extra charge of £30 put on. The kitchen is fully equiped and has a dining table which seats 6. Comfortable lounge with an arm-chair and 2 sofas which seats 7. Full central heating included in the price. The cottage has beautiful uninterupted views of the surrounding countryside and has a parking space for 2/3 cars. The cottage is part of a courtyard with ongoing development at the moment which when finished will really give extras to the property. The cottage is part of a working poultry farm.
