Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty on the edge of the conservation area this cottage delivers all the character charm one expects and offers further potential (subject to the usual planning regulations).

The wealth of character features are particularly abundant in the main living space. An open plan light room combining sitting room and dining area. The focal point of the sitting room is the inglenook fireplace housing a multi fuel stove with dressed stone wall, exposed beams, feature window seat and integrated American oak shelving. Original flagstone flooring flows through into the dining room, situated to the front where a box window affords views across this picturesque Cotswold valley. A small galley kitchen has a range of handcrafted wooden units, butler sink, electric cooker and fridge, additional built-in storage and slate flooring. A step leads up into the conservatory, a useful additional living space in which to relax, with a glazed roof, dressed stone walls and a stable door opening to the side and garden beyond. A further step leads into the utility area with plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher and also houses the oil fired boiler, wall mounted units offer further storage. The ground floor bathroom is fitted with a three-piece white suite and dual heated towel rail.

To the front an entrance porch is a useful shelter from the elements and offers space to hang coats and store shoes.

A character winder staircase behind a latch and brace door accesses the first floor landing and boarded loft space. Restored

timber floorboards add character and warmth throughout the first floor. A window to the rear lights the landing and built-in

cupboards run the full length. The principal bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and dual aspect increasing the feeling of light and space.

The exposed beams and original fireplace add character and a sink is a practicable addition. The second double bedroom has a stone mullion window overlooking the pretty garden.

Further enhancing this beautiful cottage are wonderful landscaped gardens that lie mainly to the side and rear. A path and steps wind up through the established tiered planted borders that take you from the level of the village road to an elevated central lawn that is well-tended. A backdrop of mature trees and shrubs give shelter and privacy. To the far end an open aspect with Cotswold stone wall, vegetable garden and greenhouse.

A summer house provides the perfect retreat in which to relax or entertain and a further insulated timber outbuilding gives flexibility as a home office / workshop or studio; both have power and lighting. Of great benefit to the cottage is the driveway with parking for several cars and a detached single garage.
