Set within its own grounds this Bentham cottage features first-class, stylish accommodation in a beautiful setting and has a delightful babbling brook running through the garden. Converted to a very high standard, this beautiful Bentham cottage comprises two separate buildings which are linked internally via the utility room. The main farmhouse is made up of four bedrooms, a stunning lounge with a woodburning stove, a designer farmhouse style kitchen with a woodburning stove and a pretty cottage garden overlooking the brook. The annexe, which has its own separate entrance, comprises a spacious double bedroom with en-suite and an open plan living room with stylish kitchen and sitting area. Stylishly furnished, this fabulous Bentham cottage exudes character throughout, with many modern appliances, yet retains much of the charm of the original dwelling.
