About this property

  • This pair of period cottages are Grade II listed and are set in a private position with panoramic views over open countryside.

    Providing an idyllic country retreat from city life and set in a plot of around 1.2 acres, these delightful homes are full of character and have been in the same family ownership for several decades.

    Hixham Cottage is the larger of the two and provides up to four bedrooms and three receptions plus a study, together with a kitchen diner, utility and two ground floor bathrooms.

    Barnfield Cottage has a kitchen, bathroom and sitting room on the ground floor with two bedrooms above.

    The original character of the house has been retained and sits below a mostly thatched roof, which was redone about 6 years ago. Internally there is abundance of character features such as exposed timbers and original stock brick inglenook fireplaces.

    The gardens of both homes interconnect and provide a mix of landscaped borders, vegetable plots and hedged borders. To the side there is a parking area for several cars in front of a detached timber double garage.

    In all, this area extends to around 1.2 acres.

    Wrapping around the gardens on three sides is a mix of paddocks and woodland, extending to an additional 15.2 acres. This can provide a multitude of uses including equestrian as there is a stable block on the eastern edge.

What a fabulous place! The most amazing setting and a true oasis away from city life. I love the fact that you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere yet the pub is just a mile or so away - and you can be on a train into London in less than half an hour.
