About this property

  • Hansel Cottage is a stone built cottage dating in part from the 17th century and has been the second home of the current owners for nearly 40 years. Although it has been well looked after and upgraded and extended over the years, Hansel Cottage would benefit from further modernisation. The accommodation, which is generous and versatile, is arranged over two floors with bedrooms and living rooms found on both levels.

    The property is approached via a gated driveway which in turn leads to parking for a number of vehicles. The cottage sits in very pretty gardens, with stone walled front gardens and a picket gate. The remainder of the grounds are largely lawned with mature rhododendrons, shrubs, spring bulbs and number of established trees including fruit trees, Magnolia and Chestnut. There is beautiful stonework and terracing within the grounds, which border open fields and woodland beyond and offers gorgeous views across the tranquil valley.
