    About this property

    • Birds View Cottage is an enchanting and well maintained cottage, set in over half an acre, with beautiful gardens and two superb annexes.

      The principal building dates to 1850 and comprises light filled and well-proportioned rooms with period features.

      Occupying the heart of the house is a wonderful open plan, double aspect kitchen, breakfast and reception room. The kitchen has hand built wooden cupboards and work surfaces, a double butler style sink, built in antique butcher's block and a four-oven electric AGA; windows look over the gardens. Within the elegantly proportioned reception room is a delightful wood-burning stove.

      There are two further reception rooms - a sitting room and a garden room. These are both excellent spaces with stunning views over the gardens and terraces. Completing the ground floor accommodation is a useful laundry room, boot room, front hall, lobby and lavatory.

      The first floor has three Velux windows and consists of three well-proportioned bedrooms, a family bathroom and large, airy landing.

      ANNEXES
      Birds View Cottage benefits from two timber framed, detached annexes: one with two bedrooms and a shower room and another open plan studio with shower room. Both annexes are presently used as successful holiday lets.

      GARDENS
      Birds View Cottage has beautiful, mature and secluded gardens. Immediately to the rear of the house is an excellent terrace, which can easily be accessed via the sitting room and garden room, ideal for al fresco dining.

      Approached via a drive off a quiet single track road, Birds View Cottage has ample parking for up to six cars.

    Birds View Cottage is a wonderful house with two fantastic annexes in an idyllic and tranquil location. I love the beautiful gardens and superb views.
