Little Fromans, a red-brick cottage with flint garden walls is positioned down a quiet cul-de-sac, with no passing traffic.
Next to a handful of cottages it overlooks the village at the front and is surrounded by green fields at the rear.
A terrace to the front, side and rear of the property allows you to enjoy these views as you dine outdoors, while inside in winter months you can relax by the open fire.
Bring your family and friends along to share a much-needed rest, with plenty to see and do in the local area.
The fresh, welcoming feeling of the sitting-room will help you relax on the L-shape sofa or you can put your feet up on the two-seater settee in a snug corner of the room.
Neutral colour schemes and lighting combine to create a quiet, peaceful ambience.
On a cold winter's evening enjoy a read of your favourite book in front of the fire, or tune in to the TV after a long day of exploring.
The kitchen is fully fitted, with modern units, lovely views over the village and is connected by an archway to the dining room, with a table set for eight.
The ground floor double bedroom boasts an en-suite shower room and French double doors leading out onto the terrace on the west side of the house – perfect for watching the sunset.

There are two more double bedrooms upstairs – one with a king-size bed and the other a double and single bed, for use as a twin.
