This pretty cottage is a gem of a find as it is so delightfully private yet situated in the heart of the local village Conservation area with local amenities close by. For lovers of old houses, then look no further as this charming period cottage is believed to have origins dating back to 1540. Its piece de resistance has to be the magnificent inglenook fireplace in the main reception which is a fine example of its kind and sets the scene perfectly. In addition, there are beamed ceilings, lattice leaded windows and the internal wooden latch doors as well black timbered and white plastered walls. The kitchen/breakfast room is a later edition, which blends in well both external and interally with a cottagey feel, providing essential practical space for modern living.

Surrounded by mature hedges and trees, it is a beautifully secluded garden, designed to be fairly low maintenance.
