Please note -

Planning permission has been obtained for the renovation of the cottage to provide holiday accommodation but it is considered, subject to obtaining the necessary consents, that it would be ideal as overflow accommodation/granny annexe or indeed a home office.

Beyond the adjacent cottage is a privately owned parking space for 2 /3 vehicles or indeed space for caravan or boat storage.
To the rear -

To the rear of the cottage is a lovely 'secret' garden, extremely spacious contained within mature hedging and trees to give privacy.
