Ground floor: Enter through the bright porch with cushioned window seats overlooking the front garden, and useful coat hooks and shoe/boot storage.
This leads into the sitting room, stylishly furnished with comfortable seating, atmospheric wood burner, dining table, TV and DVD player, and lots of books, maps and games.
Through the sitting room is the attractive country-style kitchen, fully equipped with everything you need including a dishwasher, washing machine and freezer compartment in the fridge. There are also some further coat hooks and space for a dog bed. The kitchen door exits to a communal courtyard and driveway (not enclosed).
Stairs to the first and second floors rise from the sitting room.
First floor: Off the first floor landing is a twin bedroom with 3 ft singles (zip-and-link superking on request), clothes storage, hairdryer and TV, and a light, spacious bathroom with hand basin, WC and bath with hand-held shower attachment.
Second floor: Relax and spread out in the roomy double bedroom suite with king-sized bed, wardrobe, drawers, easy chair, hairdryer and TV/DVD. The en suite shower room is fitted with a shower, hand basin and WC.
Heating at the cottage is by electric radiators/storage heater, plus a wood-burning stove.
Our outdoor spaces really help Ivy Cottage to stand out from the crowd, and add an extra dimension to your holiday. The walled, enclosed front garden is a haven for bird life and is the perfect place to sit and relax in the evening as the sun goes down. Even more special is the separate side garden (previous guests have dubbed it the Secret Garden), a lovely private space where you can enjoy a drink, a meal or a convivial barbecue around the outdoor dining table. Close the gate and you can let your dog roam off the lead as you chink glasses and unwind to a symphony of birdsong.
