The property

Combining character features with modern décor, underfloor heating, and two wood burners, this wonderful cottage feels welcoming and special.

The hub of the home is undoubtedly the large kitchen diner with a handmade refectory table close to the patio doors so the family can spill out onto the lawn for alfresco breakfasts and summery evening barbecues.

Alternatively, on cooler evenings, the kitchen/diner has a woodburner and sofas for relaxing in front of the chef!

The cosy sitting room has high vaulted ceilings with plenty of exposed oak ben of deep sofas and a woodburner to toast your toes after a day’s walking in the countryside or a hectic day on the beach. Relax together for a film night or a quieter moment. There is a piano for the musical member of the family to entertain you.

The cottage has a mixture of ground-floor and first-floor bedrooms, most with en-suite bathrooms, some with private TVs and a combination of bed sizes that ensure the whole family has a very comfy stay.

The master bedroom has a super king-size bed with an en-suite and the added touch of an ethanol fire built between the bedroom and bathroom for that romantic feel!

To keep the whole family amused between meals and outings, there is a warm, cosy games room with a woodburner and sofas, perfect for the spectators of the pool table.

Why not relax in the sauna, dip in the swimming pool or chill out in the hot tub under the stars?

There is an enclosed courtyard garden with a Wendy house, a lawn area for teenies and pets, and plenty of seats for adults to sit peacefully.
