Additional amenities & feature info
The charming open-plan accommodation is very spacious and equipped to a very high standard. The kitchen has plenty of workspace, adequate cupboard storage and a generous size fridge/freezer. The property is very cosy and fully centrally heated. Each radiator is individually thermostatically controlled. The addition of a woodburner adds a lovely glow and comfort on those chillier evenings. An initial big basket of logs is provided and thereafter further baskets of logs can be requested and paid for, as and when required.

We have a list of kitchen products that you will find in the cottage and will very happily email this to you if you are coming to stay, to avoid duplicate packing!
