Sitting / Dining Room

This lovely room not only has spacious dimensions, but an easy elegance that is both charming and inviting. Three windows to the front give lovely views over the little walled courtyard beyond and bring in lots of natural light. A brick fireplace with gas fire makes a cosy focal point. Stairs to first floor and door to inner lobby.

Inner Lobby

This intriguing inner lobby gives access to the kitchen and study. Tiled floor. Built-in shelving.


This useful additional reception room, with its high ceiling and window to the front, has been used as a study / hobby room. Tiled floor.


Situated at the side of the house is the very sweet cottage kitchen, which has a small range of built-in units with tiled worktops and a one bowl sink with separate drainer and mixer tap. Electric hob with oven below. Terracotta tiled floor and part vaulted ceiling. A pantry at the end of the kitchen makes a useful storage space and houses the under counter fridge and Boiler.

Bedroom 2

A good size double bedroom, handily situated next to the main bathroom. A roof light and Velux window provide natural light to the room. Built-in shelving.


A traditional style bathroom with panelled bath, WC and wash basin with storage cupboard under. Tiled floor. Roof light. Room for free standing storage.


An internal door from the entrance hall leads you through to the garage, which is a real bonus. Light and power connected. Up and over door to front.

First Floor Bedroom

Stairs from the sitting / dining room lead up to the main bedroom which is very pretty and completely in keeping with the feel of the cottage. A cleverly designed en-suite shower room is open to the main bedroom and there is a good amount of eaves storage either side of this (unmeasured). NB: Some restricted head height to this floor.

En-suite Shower Room

This handy en-suite comprises a modern glass shower cubicle, wash basin and WC.


The cottage is approached through an archway off of Watchbell Street, which leads through to a communal courtyard where there is off-street parking, garages and turning for this cottage and the residents of the building in front which faces onto the street. The cottage is tucked away in the corner and has a designated parking space in front of its garage. A locked gate takes you through to the small, pretty, walled courtyard garden at the front of the cottage where there is space for pots and containers and seating. This is the perfect place for your morning coffee or evening G and T and would be ideal for anyone with dogs as a space for them to be let out safely. The front door is accessed from this area, making this property very secure, ideal for anyone looking for somewhere to "lock up and leave".
