The cottage retains a wealth of period features, including exposed wall and ceiling beams, lovely floor boards and recessed alcoves, including the former bread oven in the kitchen. The property has been extended at the rear to provide access to a lovely kitchen/dining room and utility room, and the roof has been converted to provide a spacious, light and airy master bedroom with plenty of under eaves storage.
Outside, the gardens are superbly presented, with a patio providing a perfect outside dining space and a small bridge over the trickling leat to an area of lawn with a summerhouse, currently used as a workshop, but with lighting and power; an ideal place for those who wish to work from home.
