A rural hideaway yet ideally placed for sightseeing
Once the residence of the Head Gardener for the surrounding Elliston Estate, Gardener’s cottage is a quintessential charming two bedroom cottage.
Set in a delightful position within attractive tree-lined private grounds, the cottage is equally ideal as a romantic bolthole for couples or a rural hideaway for families, with extensive grounds for mini explorers to enjoy.
The cottage is accessed by a private track and is nestled in a peaceful, secluded position bordered by woodland to one side and the former walled garden to the rear. To the front and side of the cottage is a large informal garden.
The former drying green provides a sheltered area of lawn which is ideal for a game of football. There are delightful views from all aspects, particularly the view across rolling fields to an impressive lake complete with resident swans, overlooked by the imposing ruins of Elliston House.
Inside the cottage, the ground floor accommodation comprises a sitting room with log burner, dining room, kitchen and bathroom with walk-in shower and original cast iron bath.
Upstairs, the two charming bedrooms have zip and link beds that can be configured as a twin or super king.
Access into hallway with hanging rail and space for outdoor gear.
Sitting room with large sofa, two armchairs, flat screen TV with Freeview, DVD player, wood burning stove, selection of books and DVDs.
