Farm Cottage was originally three cottages and retains many of the original period features. The exposed beams give the cottage a wealth of character. The large inglenook open fireplace in the sitting room is the heart of the cottage which feels cosy overall. The Dining room retains the original fireplace with bread oven.

In contrast to many thatched properties there is a lot of natural light and the property benefits from good ceiling heights, especially in the sitting room where the floor has been lowered. A relatively modern extension accommodates the kitchen / breakfast room and the large utility area of which a secondary possession access with a covered porch to the village road. Doors lead out to the private courtyard which benefits from a lovely south and west aspect and is ideal for outdoor dining as well as offering a relaxed space to unwind. The first floor has a wide landing which is most unusual in a period cottage, off which are the bedrooms. The main bedroom is accessed through a dressing room/ bedroom 5 and has French doors onto a small terrace. All the bedrooms are of good size, light and bright.

The property is approached off the village road onto a gravel drive which offers ample car parking and with access to the detached barn which is a very special feature of the property. The accommodation is arranged on two floors. On the ground floor it is used for garage, workshop and storage. The first floor benefits from wonderfully exposed beams and has good ceiling heights. There is scope for converting to an annex or a home office subject to planning permission.

Steps lead up to the front garden which is a typical cottage garden, laid to lawn with established rose and shrub borders and features an original well. The gardens raise steeply on the southern boundary. The rear courtyard can be approached from the side of the cottage or through the house and this benefits from a south and west aspect with further storage in the retained wall.
