About this property

  • Rainbow Cottage was built in the 1990s by award-winning builder C G Fry & Son, a well regarded local building firm who are still operating from the village today. Built in a traditional style of local stone with a mostly thatched roof, in keeping with many of the cottages in the village.

    Rainbow Cottage has spacious, well laid out accommodation over two floors. On the ground floor is a particularly nice, spacious reception hall, off that is the sitting room with open fireplace, kitchen with AGA, dining room and garden room. A utility room and WC complete the downstairs accommodation.

    On the first floor is the main bedroom with en suite shower and lovely views over farmland, further double bedroom and two twin bedrooms and family bathroom.

    The house is approached from the quiet village lane where a wooden five bar gate opens to an area of parking and access to a garage. A pedestrian access from the lane leads to the front door. The front garden is screened from the lane by a hedge and mostly laid to lawn and to the rear of the house is a terrace also adjacent to the garden room, a small area of lawn and mature hedge and shrubs. A fence provides the boundary to the open farmland adjoining.
