About this property

  • Believed to date from 1786, Priors Cottage was extended in the 1980's to create the large kitchen/breakfast room and vaulted sitting room on either side of the original thatched cottage. The property was rethatched and double glazing installed in 2016 and now beautifully combines period charm and modern amenities including a lovely fitted kitchen with Aga. All the principal rooms lie to the front of the cottage and enjoy a south facing aspect with views over the garden and countryside beyond. The centre of the property is based on a dining room with an Inglenook fireplace and panelling over.

    A hallway leads off to a study with parquet flooring interconnecting to the occasional bedroom with double doors out to the garden. At the far end of the hallway is the stunning sitting room with high vaulted ceiling, marble fireplace with fitted wood burner, fitted bookshelves and double doors out to the south facing terrace.

    At the far end of the cottage is the boot room with door out to the rear of the property and a loft ladder to a first floor storage area, plus door to the ground floor shower room. The large kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with modern units with marble worktops, together with a 4 oven pale blue Aga and central island unit. Off the kitchen is the butler's pantry with second sink unit and built in cupboards. To the front of the house is the garden room which offers further potential as another reception room or space for office etc.

    On the first floor lie three bedrooms, the principal with en suite cloakroom, plus a shower room. All the bedrooms enjoy far reaching southerly views across the gardens to farmland beyond.

    The pretty cottage gardens, which are south facing, lie to the front of the property and comprise a terrace area and well stocked borders leading down to areas of lawn, contained by high walling and hedging. A large summer house lies at the foot of the gardens. There is a gated block paved driveway off the village lane, with further gravelled parking area.

This is a 'proper' cottage, with character and an element of quirkiness. Plus it combines being in the country but not too far from anywhere.
