The kitchen has a refurbished solid fuel stove with hot plates and oven.

The cottage has been tastefully preserved offering a quirky, cosy home with the majority of original features still present.
There are two exterior barn/shed areas which could be used for a future development purpose, subject to gaining the relevant planning permissions required.  Or could be used as they are presently, as storage areas.
