Both bedrooms are served by the bathroom with the original cast iron fireplace, bath with electric shower over, pedestal basin, WC and heated towel rail.

The courtyard leads to steps and a wrought iron gate into the garden. The garden is a particularly lovely aspect of the property, private and enclosed with a southerly aspect and views to the surrounding countryside. Gently sloping with two areas of lawn, a pathway leads up to a brick-paved seating area, timber garden shed, small pond and well stocked flower and herbaceous beds and borders. To the front of the house there is a small front garden enclosed on one side with privet hedging and a low stone wall and privet hedging to the other side.
