Blacksmiths Cottage is a truly charming, 200-year-old semi-detached stone cottage enjoying stunning countryside views to the rear and attached on one side to what used to be the old village Smithy. The pretty accommodation has been modernised throughout whilst retaining its character features with the help of a woodburning stove, whitewashed ceiling beams, and a lovely stable door in the kitchen from which to admire the views.
