An enchanting detached three bedroom Victorian cottage, with a recent full width kitchen/dining room extension to the rear elevation, standing in a well stocked & secluded garden plot of a third of an acre, backing onto paddocks. The cottage benefits from full gas fired central heating (with a brand new Vaillant boiler), and is tastefully decorated throughout. We understand that the cottage has previously operated a successful holiday let, with option of a fourth bedroom with en-suite facilities provided by a detached barn alongside the cottage, which may alternatively be suitable for a dependent or use as a home office or studio. No Onward Chain.
