    Sleeping two guests, the accommodation is elegant and spacious and includes quality furnishings, an attractive and comfortable bedroom, a newly fitted pine kitchen, an impressive Victorian-style bath and shower, plus a beautiful conservatory with additional dining area. 

    The colourful and perfectly maintained garden includes a well-tended lawn, plethora of delightful flowers and a small patio and garden swing seat, where you can sit and watch out for the red squirrels and wealth of birdlife.
