The second bedroom is smaller but very comfortable with dual aspect windows to the front and side.  Currently it is arranged with a 4ft bed, bedside table and slim wardrobe.

The bathroom is extremely generous for a cottage of this size with twin wash hand basins, a bath with a shower over, WC and two cupboards; one housing the immersion heater and the other home to the washing machine and offering further useful storage.

Outside

Buttlands Close is a small development of 16 cottages arranged off a private road.  Originally farm buildings dating back to 1870, the renovations were completed in the 1970s.  Each cottage has its own unique character and appeal and No. 5 occupies an enviable corner plot with lovely far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside from both the juliet balcony and arched windows upstairs.

The cottage has a path leading to the door with flower beds and a lawned area to the front.  The flower beds are the responsibility of the owner along with a small curtilage around the cottage.  The lawn is maintained by the site gardener but is freely available to be enjoyed by residents at number 5.

The overall maintenance and upkeep of the site and all communal areas is looked after by the management company that is jointly owned by each of the cottage owners on site. 

There is a covered car port for each cottage with handy storage space to the rear and a large visitor parking area.

Also on site is a communal drying room & bike storage shed and communal bin area.

It is possible to stroll out directly from the front door, either out into the village or along the pretty footpath accessed from the visitor parking area.
