Birdsong Cottage

This delightful property is situated within the village of Swaby, just a short drive from the charming market town of Alford on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Decorated to a high standard and tastefully furnished, Birdsong Cottage provides a tranquil and elegant place for couples or groups to use as a base for exploring all the beauty of the surrounding countryside. Enter the property from the front porch area into a cosy sitting room complete with wooden floor boards, leather sofas and a fantastic open fire. The perfect spot for cuddling up with a good book in front of a roaring fire. From this sitting room, doors open up onto a furnished patio area in the landscaped garden, at the top of which is a summer house with outstanding views of the rolling hills and forest. Next to this sitting area is a spacious open-plan living area with kitchen, dining and sitting spaces. The fully-appointed kitchen area includes all the regular features, as well as a range cooker. Upstairs are two pleasing double bedrooms, a single bedroom with lovely views over the garden and a large, modern bathroom with both a separate shower and bath. The property is sat towards the end of a quiet country lane, at the end of which is a wonderful wooded area with a picturesque lake at the foot of the valley. Take a seat next to the public footpath by this serene body of water and take in the calming atmosphere, or follow one of the many other footpaths that lead in nearly every direction. Just a short drive away is the traditional market town of Alford, with a number of quaint shops and crafts markets held throughout the year. Slightly further afield are the Lincolnshire coastal towns of Skegness and Mablethorpe, perfect for a fun day at the sea, or for scenic hiking trails, take a trip to the nearby Lincolnshire Wolds. An elegant cottage, perfectly situated for exploring all the beauty of the Lincolnshire countryside and coastline.
