OUTSIDE The cottage benefits from large gardens that lead up to an area of natural woodland which is a particular feature of this lovely home.

To the front, a paved footpath leads to both the main entrance and continues to the entrance of the conservatory. The front garden is mainly laid to lawn with a well stocked mature flowerbed with a variety of plants, shrubs and trees.

Immediately to the rear of the cottage and accessed via the conservatory, is a courtyard (measuring approximately 30' x 15') with outbuilding and totally enclosed by a natural stone wall and wooden panel fencing. This area has a paved patio providing a peaceful space for outside dining and enjoying the afternoon/evening sun alongside which is a small lawned area.


The main section of the garden and parking is located on the other side of the access lane. This large garden is cleverly tiered to provide several sections that lead to a natural woodland area at the top of the garden.

The first section of garden provides a chipped parking area for up to four vehicles which is bordered by natural stone walling. A paved footpath leads from here to all sections of the garden.

The next section of garden offers complete privacy with a large area of lawn bordered by well stocked flowerbeds with a colourful array of plants and shrubs. To the side of the lawn is a wooden decked area providing a special and private space from which to enjoy the garden and sunshine, with a wooden garden storage shed alongside (measuring approximately 8' x 6') behind which is a useful woodstore.

The pathway continues to an additional area of lawn enclosed by natural stone walling alongside which is a further seating area and an area with raised beds which have been used for the growing of fruit and vegetables. The pathway winds through areas of garden which have been left to nature, at the top of which is an additional wooden shed (measuring approximately 7' x 5') ideal for keeping chickens/hens and with raised beds. The garden gradually turns into a natural woodland and continues for approximately another 100ft.

The top of the garden enjoys wonderful views over the village and surrounding countryside.
