Property Full Details

BRIEF DESCRIPTION This wonderful canal side cottage has all the charm, quirks and character that you would hope for in a property in this location. Having been extended by previous owners, this roomy cottage has accommodation comprising Entrance Hall, Lounge/Dining Room with Wood Burning Stove, Sitting Room having underfloor heating and French Doors overlooking countryside, Breakfast Kitchen with rustic style wooden kitchen cabinets and oil-fired Rayburn, Utility Room and ground floor Cloakroom with WC. To the first floor there are Three Bedrooms all with Ensuite bath or shower rooms.

Outside is truly delightful, with the Llangollen Canal one side of the property and farmland the other side. The good-sized garden extends to the side with plenty of space for growing vegetables, keeping poultry or simply relaxing on the large deck enjoying the views. The garden ends in a small damson orchard and there is a private offside mooring there. The mooring is on the Canal and Rivers Trusts register of approved end of garden moorings and arrangements to moor a craft need to be made with them. Currently a mooring licence for a 45-foot boat costs £554.74 per annum. We are advised a longer boat could be accommodated and the cost of mooring licence would increase.
