This charming Grade II listed detached cottage is believed to date back to 1804 and offers many period features from this time, such as inglenook fireplace and exposed beams. The property has been updated by the current owners and the improvements include a re-fitted kitchen in 2016, re-fitted bathroom and cloakroom in 2017 plus fitted window shutters. The spacious accommodation includes a large sitting/dining room, cloakroom and kitchen. To the first floor there are two double bedrooms and family bathroom. Externally there is a five bar gate leading to a block paved driveway providing off road parking. The garden is raised with a decked seating area and summer house.
