Evelyn House



Evelyn Cottage is a charming mid terrace 18th century cottage, still with a few original beams and character features. It was originally converted from a row of shops and is tucked away in the heart of the preservation area of the village, close pubs/restaurants/shops and supermarket. Very comfortably furnished and well-equipped in traditional and modern styles, the property would suit couples looking to escape for a few days with friends, or small family.

Ground floor; entrance into modern tiled, kitchen with two bistro chairs and table handy for a quick snack or coffee, plus staircase. Large lounge with wood flooring, dining area and feature gas fire plus front entrance. First floor; Two bedrooms, one with a 4’ bed and the master room with a lovely French double bed and two steps down to small en suite wet room with shower, WC and washbasin. Family bathroom with bath having shower attachment on taps (situated under eaves so guests must be aware of low level ceiling), WC and washbasin.

There is a front entrance but with private parking at the rear, it is easier to access the cottage from the pretty courtyard garden - perfect for returning to after exploring the area. There is mostly all-day sunshine so eating and sitting outside is a restful end to a busy day. With gas central heating the property is warm and inviting for holidays over the cooler months too.

Parking: private space at the rear behind garden.
Garden; Small courtyard garden.
