A utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer is on the ground floor, perfect for washing away those muddy paw prints. Unwind in the beautiful enclosed tiered cottage garden where you’ll find a lawn, gravelled patio area and decked area with picnic benches. Enjoy some al fresco dining during the summer and get the BBQ going; just make sure your hound doesn’t scoff all of the sizzling sausages!

Very remote location but that is the attraction together with the rear garden views. Large greenhouse effect living area makes for great open-plan outlook but too hot in summer and no air conditioning to help. Lovely quirky cottage with separate self contained out house.
