About this property

  • Grade II listed Woodbine Cottage is constructed of brick elevations under a thatched roof and is believed to date from the 18th century. The current owners have undertaken a programme of refurbishment and extension during their period of ownership, creating deceptively spacious and flexible accommodation.

    A thatched, brick porch leads into the large sitting room, with a wood-burning stove and ‘herringbone' brick fire surround. The centrally located dining room opens through into a conservatory, with bi-fold doors on to the terrace and garden beyond. The charming kitchen/breakfast room, with flagstone floor, has a wide window seat in the bay window overlooking the garden. It has a range of shaker-style units and a central island, granite worktops and a double butlers sink. The study/bedroom four, shower room and utility room, with stable door to the garden and a flagstone floor, complete the ground floor.

    Upstairs offers a dual-aspect principal bedroom overlooking the garden, with a dressing area and en suite bathroom, two further double bedrooms and a separate WC.

    An oak-framed guest annex/studio in the garden (“The Hayloft”), offers a bedroom/sitting room and a shower room. It has full-height windows and French doors on to a verandah overlooking the garden.

    The property is approached via a large gravel driveway, with ample parking. The oak-framed double garage and workshop is set to the side. To the rear of the cottage, the charming garden, laid mainly to lawn, is interspersed with well-stocked borders and split-level terracing, offering a variety of seating areas, including one from the top of the garden with beautiful, far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside.

Woodbine Cottage is one of the prettiest cottages I've ever marketed, with a great pub in the village.
