Handmade cupboards give character to the kitchen, while the magnificent thatched roof was professionally re-thatched recently.

The cottage was originally constructed with wide stone walls which are now dry lined and insulated with upgraded double-glazed sash windows.

Sitting on a 0.5 acre site, there’s also an outhouse that could be renovated for storage or entertainment, as well as its own fruit and vegetable patch for sustainable living.
