Here you can engross yourself in heritage, nature and fine country living.
A walk through Wisteria – Ground floor
Wisteria is a very homely cottage with period features giving it lots of character and country allurement.
Step into the welcoming hallway, kick off your boots, take off your coat and wander into the well-equipped kitchen. The kitchen has all you need to rustle up a home-cooked breakfast or dinner, and includes an electric oven and hob, a large fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave. There is also a small kitchen table offering space to enjoy a lazy breakfast, and the adjoining utility room offers a washing machine and clothes horse, as well as accommodating a separate WC. The very comfy front living room offers a spacious corner sofa just waiting for you to curl up on with the wood burner lit and a good film on the TV/DVD or a book from the shelf. The rear of the property also benefits from a lounge/diner with formal dining table to celebrate that special occasion, a comfortable sofa and armchair on which to while away the evening in front of an additional TV with Blu-ray player. Leading off the lounge is a sunny conservatory with relaxing bamboo seating – a perfect place for that all-important morning coffee.
