Charming cottage situated in a secluded village location

About this property

  • Black Cottage is an attractive period cottage with later additions, standing in a prime but secluded position in the village, set back from Quay Street. The cottage is near to the quay and enjoys a secluded garden and stunning views over open countryside. Internally, the house has great character with well proportioned rooms including a large sitting room with a multi-fuel stove, which leads through to a dining room and kitchen. Accessed off the hall there is a cloakroom/shower-room and a study which can also serve as a fourth bedroom. The house is well presented throughout and the accommodation flows well. On the first floor, up the main staircase, there are three bedrooms and a bathroom. From the dining room a second, spiral staircase leads to an upstairs sitting room. This is a stunning vaulted ceiling room with breathtaking open views over fields and the estuary. Planning permission has been granted for the dining room below to be extended, giving a sun terrace above accessed by French windows from the upstairs sitting room. Outside, the gardens are mainly laid to lawn to both the front and rear and well stocked with a variety of fine flowering shrubs. The garden is sheltered and private and the terrace by the house is perfectly positioned for sunshine.
