PROPERTY DESCRIPTION Arguably one of the finest examples of a sympathetic and beautifully restored Grade II listed cottage. This fantastic family home occupies an envious position overlooking the village green and is believed to have been built by the Mayoress of London to be used by teaching staff at the neighbouring former school (now owned by The Landmark Trust).

The main house is laid with slate flooring throughout the ground floor and retains many original features. The accommodation comprises; entrance hall, sitting room and dining/living room both with inglenook fireplaces and wood burners, characterful kitchen/diner with exposed stone walling, utility room and shower room. On the first floor there are five bedrooms (four doubles) and a bathroom.
The Barn is a detached stone and slate conversion completed to an extremely high standard with vaulted 'A-frame' ceilings, open plan kitchen/dining/living, one bedroom and a shower room.
Outside, there is extensive gravel off road parking and the enclosed gardens are laid to lawn with vegetable beds and seating area offering stunning rural views.
