The property

Bowater Cottage sits at the end of a private driveway, giving it that tucked-away feeling. The cottage has its own entrance leading into a small hallway and then into a modern kitchen. It has all the crockery and equipment you will need for a self-catering holiday. The lounge has floor to ceiling windows to make the most of the view while giving it an open and bright feeling.

Central heating is by a gas combi-boiler with instant hot water....
