The lounge has a very large corner sofa and stylish occasional seating, Smart 4K TV with SKY soundbar and sub along with a wood burner.

There is a raised recently refurbished kitchen accessed by 2 shallow steps, with electric oven and gas hob, microwave, dishwasher and fridge.

We had a fantastic time at depot rd. The house is perfect for 12 people who can enjoy the meal together at the large table at the same time which you not always get with other cottages.
