Valentine Cottage is private, entirely self contained, there is a large driveway with off road parking.

The cottage is all on a single level, with just one step down from the bedroom 'wing' to the sitting room. There is ramp access to the rear of the cottage. The cottage is laid out in a square u shape,with the bedrooms down one side (the original thick brick dividing walls have been retained for privacy) the sitting room is across the back of the building and the kitchen is on the other side of the 'u'. The 'u shape' is enclosed by a pretty, paved courtyard and a large lawned garden has been created beyond.
The cottage has 3 bedrooms all of double size. The accommodation is flexible, the Master Bedroom has a king sized bed. The second bedroom has a 6ft Super king size, zip and link bed which can be divided to make 2, 3ft single beds.
