This charming cottage dates to the 1800s and has been a very much loved and enjoyed home of our sellers for the last eight years. During this time it has undergone thoughtful improvements with the creation of gated parking for three vehicles and the lean to has been upgraded to a workshop with utility area, enhancing the practicality of the cottage. Inside, the property offers the perfect place for relaxation and entertaining with two reception rooms and the fireplace with multi-fuel burner adds a touch of character and warmth. In recent years a new shower room suite has been fitted, new carpets laid in the last two years and the original doors have been stripped and retain the original latches on the first floor. The heart of this home lies in the combined kitchen/dining room which has a dual fuel Rayburn for heating and cooking and creates a cosy ambiance for meals with family and friends.

Outside, the landscaped garden provides a sunny retreat with excellent privacy, ideal for enjoying the outdoors in peace and with plenty of space to host a summer barbecue.
