Situated in an elevated position in the original part of the village, Orchard Cottage is a spacious, detached modern house which has been in the same ownership for the last 36 years. This is testament to the light airy and versatile living accommodation within as well as the very generously sized garden and the far-reaching views.

Many of the rooms have south-facing windows overlooking the extensive garden and the whole plot measures just over half an acre in total.
