Full Description

Believed to date predominantly from the 1700's, although possibly with its origins going as far back as the 1500's, The Cottage offers an abundance of character and charm internally with an attractive cottage style rear garden and an attached stable and barn (currently used as a workshop).
Presently arranged as a two bedroom cottage in the main residence, it has the benefit of plenty of reception space plus a guest wing, eminently suitable for dependant relatives, teenagers or visitors, although there is the option to convert this lovely home into a four bedroom property if preferred.
The accommodation is well arranged and comprises reception hall with flagstone floor, inner hallway, rear snug, cloakroom, cottage style kitchen/breakfast room and separate utility room, a delightful character sitting room with dining area along with the guest wing which is accessed from the ground floor and comprises sitting room with steps up to a kitchenette and from the sitting room a staircase leads to the first floor bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The main cottage itself on the first floor has a landing, two further bedrooms and a bathroom with a period style suite.
Outside, The Cottage is located in the centre of the village on The Square and within the heart of village life. The property has evolved over the years and it is evident that it has been lovingly cared for not just by the current owner, but by previous custodians of this little gem of history. Properties such as this rarely present themselves and for those in search of a character home which retains many delightful period features, but which has been sympathetically updated and modernised combining ease of living with character, this lovely cottage could provide just the answer.
