    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    The cottage is over 200 years old and for a period functioned as a village school, despite its small size. Situated on a quiet street there are good views of the countryside. The accommodation consists of a kitchen/dining room and bathroom/toilet on the ground floor. Upstairs, the ceiling has been removed to give a high living room with windows in the roof and walls. At one end, a sleeping platform with double bed can be entered using a sliding ladder. Alternatively there is a double sofa-bed in the living room. The cottage is suitable for two people or a couple with a child. One well-behaved pet welcome.

Loved this little quirky cottage and the hospitality that went with it. There was a bottle of wine, tea & coffee, biscuits and lots of other little things in the cupboards when we arrived.
