The cottage has been beautifully and sympathetically upgraded and now boasts stylish interiors and furnishings while still retaining its original character and charm, with beamed ceilings and a cosy inglenook fireplace. The neutral colour scheme used throughout helps to create a relaxed feel, fantastic for those guests wishing to truly escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and enjoy this tranquil home. On the ground floor is the main living accommodation which comprises of two living rooms, a dining room and a modern fitted kitchen boasting all the necessary amenities a keen chef could possibly need! Heading upstairs, guests will find the four gorgeous double bedrooms and two luxurious family bathrooms.

Outside, the secluded garden offers a lovely view over the adjoining meadow towards the ford. The terrace makes the perfect quiet spot to enjoy your morning coffee or spend a sunny evening dining al fresco with the whole family. 

The owners have won a number of awards for their responsible, ethical and sustainable approach to tourism. The cottage is sustainable due to their "small steps approach", from insulating the properties, installing underfloor heating, LED lighting, purchasing LED lighting, purchasing green electricity to composting and recycling.
