Poets Cottage is the former home of poet Graham Burchell. The cottage previously known as Pine Cottage, inspired 'Cottage Pi' an anthology of poems.

A doorway leads through to the kitchen at the rear of the cottage, with ceramic tiled flooring, a range of wall and floor cupboards, electric hob / oven and stainless steel sink and drainer with mixer tap and bright blue splash back tiles. Under the stairs is a useful open storage area to house a tall fridge freezer.
