Also on the ground floor is a family bathroom and utility room which is fitted with a range of units and a sink. A staircase from the utility room rises up to the first floor where there are three bedrooms which all look south over the surrounding countryside. Two of the bedrooms are double aspect and get lots of natural light throughout the day. In addition, there is also a separate room with a WC and wash hand basin lit by a Velux window.

The back garden is partly walled and has two distinct sections. The first area is situated up a small flight of steps and there is a raised patio where outdoor dining can be enjoyed throughout the summer. There is a lawn which is flanked by well stocked flower beds which are colourful throughout the year. Opposite the patio is the former stable / potting shed which provides useful workshop and storage space. Through a wooden gate is a secondary garden area which is mainly laid to lawn and enclosed by a variety of colourful trees providing a home to a variety of wildlife. The east side of the house has a patio accessed from the sitting room and is a wonderful spot for breakfast.

    Broadband availability and predicted speed

    Broadband speed is measured in megabits per second, with the number returned showing how fast the connection is. Each reading is based on the highest predicted speed of any major broadband network for services that deliver the download speeds. The following are the different readings that we may display:

    Basic: Up to 30 Mbit/s
    Super-fast: Between 30 Mbit/s and 300 Mbit/s
    Ultra-fast: Over 300 Mbit/s

    The data is updated three times a year. The checker results are predictions and should not be regarded as guaranteed. For more information, see:

    Mobile phone signal availability and predicted strength

    Mobile signal predictions are provided by the four UK mobile network operators: EE, O2, Three and Vodafone. Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted
    Red: One bar, reliable signal unlikely
    Amber: Two bars, may experience problems with connectivity
    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
    Enhanced: Full bars, likely to have good coverage indoors and to receive an enhanced data rate to support multimedia services
