Weighbridge Cottage

This single storey cottage is in the very centre of the village and 170 years ago the building was used as a small weighbridge for the gunpowder railway hoppers that passed by the building on their way down to the Pier.

Weighbridge is situated in its own enclosed garden at the south-western end of the Village facing south over a paddock down to the River Oude.

Cottage Features

The front door leads into a long hallway (with coat hanging space) with all rooms opening off. In walk order you are led to the well-appointed double bedroom; large open-plan kitchen/dining area (with oven, hob, fridge with ice-box, microwave & dishwasher); small bathroom (with bath, over-bath shower, wc & basin); spacious sitting room with large patio windows enjoying fabulous views over the paddock and to the hills beyond (equipped with open fire, two single sofa beds for occasional guests, CTV, DVD);

Car parking is in the large gravelled area at the gable end of the building or outside the front door.
