    About this property

    • Sheep Dip Cottage (formally Ashley House) is the epitome of a "chocolate box" country cottage, with its charming thatched roof, exposed beams, whitewashed walls and cosy interiors. The cottage is believed to date back to the 1600s and has all the character one would expect from a house of this age, overlaid by a stunning renovation completed in 2021 which has sympathetically modernised the space and brightened up the living areas. Premium touches such as Karndean engineered wood flooring, stained glass detailing, a stylish Wren kitchen with Bosch appliances and a bright and modern décor scheme throughout help to elevate the interiors. Externally the property is equally well presented and benefits from a lovely sunny garden and private parking. The thatched roof was recovered in 2020 with Dutch reeds for longevity.

      The cottage is deceptively spacious and offers over 1000 sq ft of accommodation over two floors, with a versatile layout which could see one of the bedrooms turned into a snug or home office if desired. Access is directly onto the expansive living area, which has a large brick fireplace and an open staircase in the middle separating the sitting and dining areas. To one side of the living space there is a double bedroom with en suite shower room, while on the opposite side there is the lovely kitchen with its breakfast bar and a separate family bathroom, which can also be accessed from a side door from the parking area. Upstairs there are a further two double bedrooms on either side of a landing, which is currently used as a study. Within the garden there is a detached summerhouse which handily doubles as a utility room.

      This home is set within attractive, fully enclosed gardens, of which the property forms one side. The garden is south facing and mostly laid to lawn, with mature trees including a well-established silver birch providing shade and privacy in the summer months. A large paved terrace is ideal for alfresco dinners and there is great potential for further landscaping if desired. Parking is situated to the side of the property.

    This is such a charming thatched cottage and I especially like the huge south facing garden with its very smart log cabin complete with fitted kitchen
