Charming Cotswold cottage with a contemporary feel in a delightful village enjoying rural views

About this property

  • The Old Sweet Shop is an excellent example of a Cotswold cottage and is built of mellow stone under a tiled roof. Internally it retains many of the expected period features including exposed timbers, deep window sills and a period fireplace. All the windows are fitted with bespoke shutters. A stable door with porch hood leads into a charming double aspect sitting room with beamed ceiling, oak flooring and attractive stone fireplace with wood burning stove.

    Beyond the sitting room is a pretty country-style kitchen with a range of wall and base units with integrated Bosch appliances and a door leading to a small courtyard. On the first floor are two double bedrooms, one with fitted wardrobe with shelves and hanging rail. Between the bedrooms and accessed off the landing is a well-appointed bathroom.

    A gravelled area lies to the side of the property with two parking spaces. Outside there is a lovely cottage-style garden with stone walls and hedging, including a productive vegetable plot, espaliered fruit trees, raspberries, blackcurrants and strawberries. Stepping stones lead through a variety of perennials to a small terrace and the front door.

    The property is very well presented and is likely to appeal to those looking for a second home, investment property or smaller Cotswold home with charm.

    The property has been a very successful holiday cottage sleeping four people.

On a quiet lane in a popular village, this cottage is definitely "sweet"! I love the Cotswold charm which it has in spades and on a practical note, the parking is a bonus.
