A cosy and welcoming Victorian cottage furnished to a high standard in an attractive cottage style.  In an elevated position the property offers lovely valley views. The entrance to the cottage is on a lower level(directly off the road)leading through a large storage/utility area with internal steep steps leading up to main part of the cottage.

On the first floor an attractive double bedroom at the front of the property offers lovely river views and at the rear is a family bathroom. Two further bedrooms can be found on the second floor, a double bedded room offering views of the river and a single room at the rear offering flexible sleeping with an additional single pull out bed.  The cottage has a small front patio providing a perfect place to enjoy the beautiful views over the river valley and listen to the river as it flows into the sea in this very special location.
