The house originally started as two cottages in the 1500s with additions throughout the centuries and the annexe in 1992. The thatch is Reed, which has the longest life expectancy, prolonged with regular upkeep.
The ground floor of the cottage is particularly spacious and comprises of an impressive, bespoke fitted kitchen with plenty of units under wooden work surfaces, integrated dishwasher, Rangemaster oven and space for a fridge/freezer.
