About this property

  • The Grade II listed thatched cottage dates to the 1700's with later additions. The present owners have updated and extended the cottage which now provides a large kitchen/breakfast room marrying the contemporary with the traditional.

    The delightful recent extension is dual aspect opening to the eaves with its exposed beams and a door onto the terrace. The working end of the kitchen features a large island and breakfast bar with cupboards that house Miele and Neff appliances under granite worktops. Directly off the kitchen, the dual aspect sitting room is enchanting with original leaded light windows, beams, a large fireplace with woodburner and the original ‘salt cupboard'. A smaller, inviting snug room leads off with an open fireplace and brick hearth. The studio or study lies beyond with its light and airy feel with windows down one wall.

    A corridor off the kitchen leading on to the rear garden houses the guest bedroom and utility room which doubles as a shower room.

    A door opens from the sitting room to a quirky wooden staircase which divides, one way to the generous sized principal bedroom with extensive dressing rooms and bathroom. The other way opens to the second bedroom. The stairs also lead down to the family bathroom.

The delightful gardens overlook paddocks. Mature trees, including two Ash trees, brick laid terraces, well stocked herbaceous borders feature. There is also a garage and workshop with its own power supply, a glazed garden shed and raised vegetable beds. In all about ¾ acre.

A real gem of a cottage, with gardens on both sides. I love the fact you can sit and watch the sheep in the field next door or simply hide away in the charming cottage garden.
