About this property

  • Church Cottage is a picturesque, detached, period property built in stone under a Stonesfield slate roof. Believed to date from the 16th century, Church Cottage is situated in a delightful, elevated position on the edge of the village and adjoining the parish church.

    With accommodation including two reception rooms, kitchen and shower room on the ground floor with two bedrooms on the upper floor. There are plenty of period features including an inglenook fireplace with a log burning stove and a substantial bressummer over, exposed beams and stone work and vaulted ceilings to the first floor.

    Now in need of some possible updating, the property may also offers scope for extending, subject to the appropriate consents. Please note that exploratory holes have been exposed in the property as part of investigations for a possible refurbishment.
