Take a few stairs up from the kitchen into the sitting room with TV and DVD player, the room gives a sense of light and space having a vaulted ceiling and bi-fold doors to the balcony and courtyard garden.
The principal entrance to Artist Cottage is via traditional granite steps to the first floor and leads into the carefully planned kitchen/diner. The kitchen is equipped with gas hob and electric oven, fridge, dishwasher, microwave and coffee machine. The bespoke dining table ensures the lay out is great to cook and enjoy fresh local produce.
The main bedroom is a few steps up from the sitting room and has a kingsize bed and adjacent shower room with wash basin and WC.
There is a quiet nook in the attic which perfect to read a holiday novel and enjoy a glass of wine.
An attractive wooden spiral staircase leads from the sitting room down to two further double bedrooms on the ground floor where there is also a second entrance to the property. Bedroom two has a contemporary four poster bed and door out to the courtyard. The third bedroom is also a good size with twin beds.
