After purchasing the property in 2016, the current owners spared no expense when renovating Oak Tree Cottage. Their vision was to create a harmonious blend of old-world charm and modern comfort. The cottage has been thoughtfully updated to incorporate contemporary amenities while preserving its unique character. The cottage boasts three generously sized bedrooms, providing ample space for a growing family or accommodating guests. The master bedroom is a tranquil sanctuary, featuring large windows that frame breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. The other two bedrooms are equally inviting, offering cozy retreats for relaxation and rejuvenation.
