The cottage, which was formerly a farmstead would benefit from a careful and sympathetic programme of modernisation.

beams and concealed inglenook fireplaces. There is a wood burning stove in the sitting room and an open grate in the dining room. The two receptions rooms are well proportioned and there is a kitchen with a walk-in pantry and a shower room/utility room and a cloakroom. The family bathroom is located on the first floor and serves the three well proportioned bedrooms. The accommodation is double glazed with uPVC windows. The thatched barn is a lovely building in its own right and extends to an internal area of approx. 67 square metres. The barn offers tremendous scope for adaptation to a work space or studio and there may be potential for change of use (subject to the usual planning consents).

There is a delightful paved terrace and pergola which provides the perfect setting for out door entertaining. The driveway, which could be extended to create additional or separate parking for the cottage and the barn, leads to a single garage.
