A truly delightful Grade II Listed thatched cottage of great character and history standing close to the heart of the village with a walled garden. The cottage is believed to be one of the oldest original buildings in the village and has been carefully and sympathetically updated over recent years whilst still retaining all of its inherent character with fireplaces, exposed beams and floor boards. The overall accommodation is larger than first anticipated and includes a lovely double aspect sitting room with a inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove. The sitting room is beautifully complemented by a separate dining room opening into the kitchen/breakfast room with a terracotta tiled floor and a gas fired dual plate Aga. The kitchen is fitted with a range of cabinets and an integrated dishwasher with space for a refrigerator and washing machine. There are two spacious bedrooms with exposed beams and a brick fireplace to the principal bedroom. There is a superb bathroom completed with a traditional suite including a roll top bath, WC and pedestal wash hand basin. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a charming cottage in a gorgeous village setting.
