The surrounding countryside is characterised by traditional farms, orchards, and wooded hills, and is renowned for its scenic and unspoilt rural appeal.

Church Lane Cottage * This pretty period cottage dates from the mid 1,600's and has been lovingly maintained by the current owners during their near 30-year tenure. The original timber framed cottage was extended into the attached period barn last century and now makes a spacious and comfortable 3 bedroomed home.

* The front door opens to a vaulted, quarry tiled entrance hall and stairway. The central hall links all receptions and a quality south facing conservatory opens to the 3 principal rooms, creating flexible entertaining space and great solar gain.

* The centrally located fitted kitchen is enhanced by opening directly to the conservatory, giving a comfortable and informal living environment with easy garden access.

* Two comfortable reception rooms also open to the conservatory, one with Clearview wood burning stove. Two further reception rooms provide a study and library/occasional bedroom.

* At the Eastern end of the cottage is a large utility room with rear door access leading to the garage and a generous raised patio. This room houses the modern boiler and has plenty of space for white goods.

The Outside * This property is approached off and at the end of Church Lane. The gated entrance leads to a generous gravelled driveway and the spacious double garage. The latter has an internal stair to a mezzanine loft, used as a studio and hobby room.
