Cockburn's Cottage is a delightful listed thatched village home which retains immense charm and considerable character.
The accommodation which is unusually light for a cottage is arranged over two floors, and briefly comprises; reception hall, beamed sitting room with an inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove, separate dining room and a contemporary fitted kitchen. On the first floor are three double bedrooms and a spacious bathroom.
The large sunny terraced rear garden is a feature of this beautiful village home, very private with many places to sit and relax, you can dine or breakfast alfresco on the lower patio or relax with a cool glass of wine at the end of the day.
An unusual benefit with a period home is the detached double garage with studio above and generous driveway parking approached from the rear in Blackberry Lane. There is a useful utility opposite the kitchen and useful timber outbuildings.
The cottage is situated in a country lane within a few minutes stroll of the village centre and unspoiled country walks. Warmed by oil central heating and the more traditional feature of a wood burning stove. A rare opportunity.
