Thatched Cottage is a half timbered Grade II Listed home dating back to the 17th Century, offering flexible and adaptable accommodation in the main house coupled with two separate ancillary units. This is only the second time in almost 200 years that this idyllic cottage has come to the market and now offers a rare opportunity to purchase. The property stands in around 1 acre in total, with delightful formal gardens surrounding the cottage, paddock, outbuildings and extensive driveway and parking.

The property was the village Post Office since 1859 and was most recently run by three sisters, the property having been occupied by their own parents prior to them. The current owner has lived there since 1978, during which time the property has been extended, modernised and improved in many aspects whilst retaining a wealth of character features such as exposed beams, a stunning inglenook fireplace and of course the thatched roof which was most recently partially replaced in 2007. Additionally, in the workshop is the fabulous millstone and cider press which is a fine example of this piece of history, with the original chains hanging in place and untouched for over 100 years.

The main house comprises two reception rooms, 'farmhouse' kitchen, utility and two shower rooms, Cider Mill Cottage comprises living room, large kitchen, utility, three bedrooms and a bathroom and the cottage annexe comprises open plan living/kitchen, bedroom, shower room and wardrobe.

The property is approached via a gravelled driveway which provides parking for several vehicles, access to Thatched Cottage, the Annexe, Cider Mill Cottage, workshop, garage and paddock. Thatched Cottage sits to one corner of delightful cottage gardens which have been thoughtfully planted, offering flagstone patio, lawned areas, well stocked flower and shrub borders and kitchen garden where there is a greenhouse. Beyond this is the small orchard and adjacent former dovecot, which would be very useful for future storage or animal housing. To the side of the rear lawn is the summer house, with power and light connected and small kitchenette with sink. Attached to the side of the summer house is the garden shed and outside WC. A gate leads from the top of the cottage garden to the compost and utility area, with further storage sheds and sizeable chicken enclosure. Gates lead from the compost, cottage garden and main driveway to the paddock, which is enclosed by mature hedging with a few mature trees interspersed throughout. There are various power and water points throughout the land, which in total amounts to 1 acre. To the rear of Cider Mill Cottage is a lawned garden and paved patio and to the side of the annexe is a gravelled terrace.
