Anchor House is a spacious detached character cottage located within walking distance of the idyllic and most sought after village of Dymock.

The cottage dates back to the 1700's when it was a Public House on the Gloucester - Hereford canal and there was a basin where barges moored up to allow for much needed liquid refreshment in the cottage sitting room or "tap room" as it was known then, hence the name "Anchor House".

The cottage is set in a large well maintained garden adjoining open farmland with lovely views towards May Hill. Occupying a generous plot, including a paddock, the property is offered to the market with no onward chain and in brief comprises; three reception rooms, breakfast kitchen with a separate utility room, boiler room, cloakroom, four bedrooms and a bathroom.

Sitting within 0.47hectares (1.16 acres), the property is surrounded by lawned gardens and is approached along a stoned driveway providing ample off road parking for several vehicles, leading to the detached workshop and carport.

The agent strongly recommends an internal inspection to appreciate the size, potential and charm this family home has to offer.
