    About this property

    • Hinds Cottage is a detached, Grade II listed country cottage offering in excess of 2,800 sq ft of accommodation arranged over two floors.

      Built in attractive Cotswold stone with a mixture of stone and clay tile roof and mullion windows, the property offers quintessential country good looks and blends well into its countryside setting, surrounded on three sides by the Dyrham Park National Trust estate.

      To the ground floor is the drawing room with open fireplace and views into the gardens. Also at this level is a cosy sitting room with wood burner, and an imposing dining room with a wonderful tiled floor, high ceiling and direct access to the gardens. The lobby leads to the ground floor bedroom/study with en suite shower room.

      The real hub of the home is the kitchen/breakfast room. This is fitted out with a quality bespoke fitted kitchen, complete with granite work surfaces. There is space for a breakfast table as well as direct access to the front garden, the garage and a walk-in pantry.

      To the first floor are the bedrooms. The principal bedroom enjoys a spacious en suite bath/shower room as well as views of the gardens. There are three further double bedrooms - all with open views - and a further shower room.

      Outside
      The property benefits from well-tended gardens that wrap around the house. To the front of the property is a gravel driveway/parking area, which in turn leads to a single garage with up-and-over door.

      From the front, there is access to a spacious glass house with stone flooring and butlers sink. Leading from here are productive raised vegetable beds.

      The main gardens are to the rear and enjoy a large lawn area enclosed by well-stocked flower beds and mature shrubs/hedging. This creates a colourful oasis to sit back and relax and enjoy the gentle bird song. Leading off the back of the house is a patio ideal for al fresco dining, which links up with the dining room through large French doors.

      Finally, there are a number of specimen trees that further complement the gardens and add to this magical location.
