A seperate utility room is off the kitchen with freezer and microwave oven, Washing Machine, tumble dryer, Iron etc. There is a lovely and well appointed family bathroom with a bath and a separate power shower. If you have small children or a baby, we have a travel cot and bed guard to prevent any smallies from falling out of bed. A stair gate for the top of the stairs & a door at the bottom making it very safe for kids. Also, we have a high chair. The cottage has oil fired central heating and also a beautiful wood burning stove in the kitchen which gives incredible heat on the coldest of winter nights. Oustide is a beautiful walled patio area surrounded by flowers & fresh herbs. It is a sun trap and there is a table & chairs & parasol for you to enjoy a BBQ in the summer.This cottage will not suit people who do not like dogs as we have two very friendly springer spaniels who love children and may occasionally pop over to say hello. They will not be a nuisance as long as you are not giving them tasty treats! The property is fully equipped with all you would need for a romantic break, family holiday, sailing or golfing trip.More
