Self Contained Cottage in the Heart of Uppingham
Number 4 Pleasant Terrace is part of a Victorian Terrace built in 1896 with many original features, wood panelled walls, tiled floors, cast iron fires etc. The honey coloured stone on the outside had been taken from an earlier building which stood on the spot as there is a sundial dated 1666 set into it. (The oldest in Rutland apparently) Curtains and Austrian blinds are all hand made from Chinese silk.
It sleeps 3 comfortably. 2 adults in the first floor bedroom and 1 adult on the sofa bed downstairs. With its own entrance accessed from the street by a short flight of steps down. Regrettably it is not really suitable for wheelchair users as a result. Internally the stairs to access upstairs are narrow and the garden has steep steps down.
Central heating throughout as well as a log burner which will make any winter visit very cosy and comfortable. It has a kitchen with sink,cooker (small electric oven with 2 hobs), electric rice cooker, microwave and fridge freezer and ground floor sitting room with sofa bed.The TV has Freeview and a built in DVD player with a large collection of DVD's available to watch.The first floor has a fully-tiled bathroom with spacious shower and a comfortable double bedroom with double bed and Wardrobe. Outside the garden has 4 terraces,one with a pond,(so children must be supervised at all times) with fish and extensive country views of open fields across the valley. Planting has been done to maximise each season. Apple trees form the hedge on the west side and you are welcome to try any when in season (usually in September). We live next door and grow vegetables in a small plot at the bottom of the garden and again you are welcome to use any which are in season for your cooking.
Pleasant Terrace is situated in a Cul-De-Sac at the far end of Adderly St and is a very quiet corner of the Town.
