Outside Description

Lucky Cerne steals the show when it comes to views. It’s end-of-terrace location means it has extensive views across the landscape. It is nearby to all facilities at Lancombe, and the back entrance opens out onto the courtyard, where there is a fantastic amount of space to sit and relax. But you can also sit and look at our resident chickens and woodland out the front on further seating provided.

Downstairs Description

Cerne is light, bright and airy, and offers beautiful living space on the ground floor, with an open-plan kitchen, lounge and dining area with an electric imitation log burner, for that extra cosy feeling without the hassle!
