Converted in the late 80s this attached cottage was originally designed as a holiday cottage enjoying wonderful views across the Umborne Valley and set in the grounds of a Grade II listed farmhouse and therefore within the curtilage. In 2017 consent was granted to allow unrestricted residential occupation.

The accommodation includes an entrance hall, kitchen partly open to a living room with views across the valley, downstairs bathroom and stairs rising to the first floor where there are three bedrooms.


There is a large area of parking for several cars with potential to extend the garden/parking . Steps rise up to the terrace beside the property with a garden laid to lawn bordered in part with timber fencing which enjoys stunning views across the valley.
