This charming three bedroom detached cottage is now available to let. Situated in the hamlet of Upper Westholme, close to the ever popular village of Pilton, this stone built cottage on a country lane, with views over fields, is perfect for those looking for rural bliss!
The cottage is newly refurbished with many period features and has been redecorated to a high standard. The front door opens into a part glazed porch area ideal for sitting to read a book and storing boots ready for countryside walks. The new well-equipped kitchen, with tiled floor, is spacious enough for a kitchen table and includes a dishwasher, fridge freezer, oven and electric hob. The kitchen window has views over neighbouring fields. Next to the kitchen is the utility room. The sitting room with wooden floors has a feature fireplace and is light and bright. Upstairs are two double bedrooms with built in cupboards and a single room that could also be used as a study. There are lovely countryside views from the bedrooms.
