The Cottage is a beautifully characterful cottage with a picture perfect chocolate box facade and a wonderful countryside setting. The property is not listed despite its character and 18th century origins, and has been ran as a successful Air BNB as of late. The property can be entered directly into both the kitchen and sitting room, and for shopping convenience the former is most frequently used. The kitchen has been significantly enlarged by previous owners, with the single storey extension now providing room for an expansive kitchen with room for a large dining table. There are two sets of french doors, with allowing direct access to the rear garden. Within the kitchen itself there are oak floorboards spanning the room, and units on either side of the room with granite effect worktops. There is a gas range cooker, plus space for a washing machine, tumble drier and fridge freezer. Off the kitchen there is a cloakroom.


A doorway leads through to the sitting room which is an atmospheric living room with thick stone walls, a window with a window seat and an impressive inglenook fireplace, within which is a wood burning stove. A spiral stone staircase rises to the first floor where there are three double bedrooms, all having pretty outlooks and high vaulted ceilings. Each of the three bedrooms enjoy the use of the family bathroom which has oak floor boards, a bath with overhead shower, basin, w/c and heated towel rail.


At the front of the property, what was once a stone outbuilding has been converted into an annexe which could be perfect for further accommodation, multi-generational living, or indeed income generation through holiday letting. Within the annexe there is a living room with kitchenette, a shower room and a sleeping loft.


Immediately in front of the house, adjacent to the annexe there is driveway parking for two cars. A path leads alongside the house to the rear garden which enjoys a sunny south westerly aspect. By the kitchen there is a seating terrace which is ideal for al-fresco dining. Beyond the terrace, there is a partially walled lawned garden overlooking the field to the south-east with thick surrounding hedgerows to the north-west giving good privacy.
