On the first floor, a spacious landing gives access to five double bedrooms, all with feature fireplaces, the master of which enjoys bespoke wardrobes and drawers. A second bedroom enjoys an en-suite bath/shower room too.

On the second floor there are two more double bedrooms.

The property benefits from orchard gardens set around the house with terrace areas, ideal for alfresco dining and there are landscaped pathways with flower and shrub beds and borders.

The meadows, which extend to the back and up a charming valley have been used to support and graze horses and livestock, but more recently have been left to grow and managed only with cut grass pathways, which is ideal for wildlife and affords the owner the liberty of charming walks around the property’s own grounds with a seasonal stream adding to the appeal of the setting.

The detached cottage includes an entrance hall, a kitchen, sitting/dining room, sun room, two first floor bedrooms and a bathroom.
