The property has recently been renovated to a high standard. All walls are fully insulated† and all windows are double glazed. The cottage has been rewired and benefits from central heating system with radiators and thermostatic valves in all rooms. A wood burning boiler stove in the lounge is plumbed into the heating system to provide a back up to the electric boiler.

The property has gardens to the front, side and rear. The hedges to the boundaries are backed up with stock fencing to make the gardens safe and secure for children and pets.

A raised timber deck with patio table and chairs looks out over the rear garden, across open fields, down to the river. A barbeque and parasol are provide for use in the summer.

A former cow byre in the rear garden has been converted to provide a utility room and store. A sink and washing machine are provided together with a heater to dry outdoor gear etc. The cow byre would provide safe storage for cycles, motor bikes and fishing tackle.†
