In typical 18th cent. style, you walk along the front of its sister cottages to your front door, with its decked terrace (tables/chairs) on two levels at the front.Living room with woodburner, TV/DVD and views to the river. Kitchen/dining room (dishwasher, washer-drier, microwave, fridge-freezer, electric oven) with back door to tiny courtyard.
