Bedrooms and bathrooms
Sleeping five and with three bathrooms, Blackbird Cottage can cope with every party's needs. On the ground floor a single-bedded room and separate bathroom incorporating bath and shower cubicle mean there's no need to climb stairs. On the first floor a bay window bathes the double-bedded master bedroom in light and there's a newly-added shower room en-suite, whilst a twin-bedded room enjoys rear garden views and has its own washroom attached too.

Cooking and dining
Recently refurbished, the kitchen here is sleek and modern, with bright white cupboards, contrasting grey counter tops, a stainless-steel sink and chrome cooker. A separate and sunny dining room has a feature gas fire and plenty of space for all around its elegant wooden table.

Slide open the full-width French windows from the colourful sitting room and you're in a south-facing rear garden which is bordered by mature hedging and plants for year-round interest. A barbecue and outdoor furniture extend the welcome further. To the front of the property, there's more garden to enjoy plus a driveway with parking for one car.

All the essentials are here, including free Wi-Fi, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. Extra on-road parking is available outside the property, a travel cot is provided and there's a shed for bike storage. And just to be sure that no-one is left out of the holiday fun, your pet can come too!
