The Old Wharf Cottage was originally built in 1903 in the Edwardian era and has been lovingly maintained to a high standard. Situated on a large plot, and boasts riverside lawns stretching down to a large patio by the rivers edge. You enter the house through the main entrance hall which leads upstairs via the large oak staircase. Upstairs there is a large king-size ensuite room, with riverside views and balcony. There is one further large ensuite twin room, as well as good size twin and double rooms with access to a large family bathroom. All three bathrooms are state of the art with walk in showers and a large bath. A highlight of this house is the last double room, which is attached to the side of the house on stilts, and is constructed out of 17th century beams from one of the first ships bound for Australia and contains beautiful carvings and unique features from this era.
Downstairs consists of a large open plan fully stocked kitchen diner with both Aga and electric cookers, perfect for entertaining or cooking large family meals. There are two further lounges adjacent to the kitchen, one overlooking the river, while the other provides a cosy area equipped with electric fire and flatscreen tv. There are multiple board games available, as well as an outdoor pingpong table and croquet set. There is also a multipurpose play area for any younger children.
