The Kitchen/Dining Room
This spacious but cosy kitchen is the best room in the cottage – light and airy, it offers the best views and has been left as a wonderfully functional family kitchen. The ‘Stanley Rayburn’ boiler and large oak dining table, make this a warm and comforting room for socialising. The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas hob/electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer & dishwasher.
There is also a nespresso coffee machine which takes normal nespresso compatible pods (can be purchased locally) and a milk frother. Alternatively there is a cafetiere in the kitchen.
Having lived in the cottage for many years and cooking/baking being a passion of the owners, they have equipped the kitchen to a high standard and hope that it will exceed expectations of a self-catering property.
