About this listing
A lovely cottage with pine floor and pine vaulted ceiling, a solid fuel burning cast-iron stove, oil central heating and a fully equipped kitchen. There are two bedrooms and a cot room. We have an acre of land at the back with a small orchard!
Built in 1928, this traditional farm workers' cottage is set in an acre of ground, just 2 miles from the stunningly beautiful 'Redbarn' beach. The cottage comprises a simple dwelling with a combined living room and kitchen furnished with traditional hand made dresser and cupboards made by a local crafts man, Brian Coffee. The crockery is handmade from Stephen Pearce pottery. We have a patio for outside dining and an orchard for eating apples, plums, pears and mulberries yummmmm! we have a stereo system with an ipod dock and a small television. We love to cook, so the kitchen is well appointed with saucepans and cooking utensils. There is a small double bed room, a bedroom with twin beds and a single bedroom (which would be most suited to a child) that has to be walked through to go to the shower room. You will love sitting in our cosy living room with the cast-iron stove.
