Outside Description

The five-bar gate at the top of the drive encloses this most magical garden with large pond which wraps around the cottage.

At the front of the cottage is a water fountain with lilies, which the kitchen window overlooks. It provides the tranquil sound of trickling water and a super place for birds and other wildlife to drink. At the rear of the cottage there are two picnic tables by the pond for al fresco dining, with BBQ provided, and a small piece of lawn. There is no fencing around the pond so children must be supervised at all times.

Downstairs Description

Follow the path around the beautiful water fountain and enter into the large porch with stone tiled flooring.
