Taking care
Dating back to the late 1700’s, the cottage was refurbished in 2004.
Care was taken during the refurbishment to retain many of the main and historic features whilst bringing parts of the cottage into line with modern day requirements.
The work was deemed a great success and those who stay in the cottage can enjoy historically appealing features whilst having all the luxuries associated with modern day living.

The tiled rooms are a nice size and showcase many of the original features of the home.
The sitting room which is a great size has an open fire which is facilitated with a back boiler.
This home undoubtedly has rental potential.
