A cloakroom is located off the hall. There is a landing to the first floor with a window to the front, built-in linen shelves and access to the roof space. There are four bedrooms to the first floor, with a well finished en-suite shower room to the master bedroom. The family bathroom has a bath with shower attachment over and tiled surround, pedestal wash basin with tiled splashbacks, wc, chrome heated towel rail and tiled floor. OUTSIDE Rectory Cottage has a gravel driveway providing parking for several cars and access to the detached garage. The double garage has an up and over door to the front, pedestrian door and window to the side and power and light. There is recently expired planning permission (REF: DC/16/0675/HH) dated 7th June 2016 for a replacement garage and log store building, built in the style of a traditional timber cart lodge. The attractive and good sized established garden is enclosed by close boarded wooden fencing.
