The heart of the property is its beamed lounge/kitchen/diner, where you can prepare delicious dinners for two and relax together at the end of a long day.

As night falls, head through to the inviting double bedroom. The shower room, with WC, is also off the hall. Throw open the double doors to let a spring or summer breeze into the open-plan living area or sit out on the covered veranda to take in the beautiful views over the fields.

A small stream runs under the veranda and there is a pond across the driveway in the owners’ garden which is bordered with post and rail fencing, please take care with children.
