Just walk down to the bottom of River Cottage's garden to discover the Annalong River, while the property lies within easy reach of amenities, and with two double bedrooms, this property is ideal for two couples.

Make your way into the homely sitting room after an afternoon walk and settle in for the evening, light the pretty, white woodburning stove for warmth, and rest on one of the two maroon sofas.

Over in the open-plan living space you can discover a well-equipped and organised kitchen, host to all the essential appliances including an electric range oven and hob, a fridge/freezer, and a dishwasher, among several more.
