A most attractive 2 bedroomed stone built Victorian cottage which is well presented throughout and displays many of the original features. It benefits from having gas fired central heating, double glazed mullioned windows, mainly oak internal joinery, fitted kitchen with granite worktops and range of appliances, and a modern bathroom suite. Externally, you will find a small stone walled garden area with raised beds, and access to the recently rebuilt outhouse which has power and light.
