A property packed full of charm, character, period features and with a touch of quirky about it. Quirky in that the accommodation is seemingly spread across five levels but we feel this adds to its charm. Couple this with a beautiful south facing rear garden and you have a very unique cottage in the heart of the village.

In the small hallway you have a step up into bedroom one and stairs leading down to the lower ground floor and up to the first floor.

The sitting room is a cosy room with feature log burning fireplace and two cupboards to the alcoves. A sash window to the rear aspect lets natural light flood in and a door leads to the garden room, with a further door leading to the kitchen. The garden room is glazed to two aspects making it a light room with double doors leading to the garden. From the sitting room two steps lead you down to the kitchen which is a great entertaining space 23' in length to give ample space for dining. A typical country cottage kitchen with wall and floor units, AGA oven and conventional gas oven too. A wooden stable style door opens up on to the garden where there is a seating space just outside for alfresco dining. From the kitchen you have access to a further utility room and door leading to the front courtyard seating area. Back to the hallway and five stairs lead to the first floor where you find bedroom two.

A further double bedroom with rooflight to the rear aspect providing lovely views and an ensuite bathroom in this room with WC. Externally the rear garden, with its southerly aspect, is a gardeners delight. Laid to lawn it has an abundance of much loved and well stocked beds shrubs and small trees.
