This room then leads through to a second sitting room with a gas fire and with access to the garden. This area of the cottage is the original part, dating back to the 18th century.

Going back through the hallway, you come to the newer part of the cottage, where you will find a spacious dining room, perfect for entertaining and family dining and a well fitted kitchen/breakfast room with a range of cream units, built-in oven and hob, dishwasher and space for fridge.
