This heart-warming semi-detached cottage is situated in the village of Scalford in Leicestershire, with a homely interior perfect for you and your loved ones.

A charming dining room is elevated by a woodburner, tucked away into a characterful fireplace, for a cosy evening. The lounge is home to an L shape sofa and also benefits from a woodburner which continues your snug night, in a wonderful fashion. Three bedrooms are available for you to choose from, each complete to a delightful standard with warm coloured wooden flooring and décor. Close by, a family bathroom is finished with neat fittings containing a bath with a shower over for a classic finish. Spend some time exploring the village, surrounded by rural farmland and many footpaths where you may discover architectural remnants of a disused railway line among the fields.

Scalford retains a collection of amenities and embraces a good community spirit. You will feel right at home.
