This pet friendly self-catering holiday cottage has been lovingly restored by the owners to create a cosy and comfortable home for its guests. Throughout the property are many period features including a large double-sided inglenook fireplace and a wealth of beams adding to the character of the property. In the heart of the home is a large open plan room offering a sitting, dining and snug area. A fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar offers flexibility at meal times. There is also a handy utility room and ground floor bathroom. Within the property there are two staircases. One leading to the master bedroom and a single bedroom, with the other leading from the sitting area to a twin room bedroom and second bathroom. Outside the property is a large garden surrounded by stunning countryside views. There is also a lovely patio area complete with garden furniture and a barbeque, ideal for some alfresco dining during the summer months. Just a short walk from the house is the popular village pub The White Horse. Badingham is also home to a community led village shop and café which has limited opening times but is well worth a visit.
