Description
Oakwell Cottages is a lovely, detached period cottage dating, we believe, around 1690. It was originally a farmhouse, then three cottages but over the years has been restored back into a superb, detached home.

The property has a wealth of beams, beautiful inglenook fireplaces, latch doors and many other period features. It comprises reception entrance hall with wide gauge polished boards, attractive feature fireplace and exposed beams to walls and ceiling. Off the reception entrance hall is a useful utility and shower room. The lovely character drawing room has an inglenook fireplace, beamed ceiling, double aspect windows and panelled doors to the sitting room and latch door leading to a dual staircase. The charming sitting room also has an impressive inglenook fireplace with wood-burning stove and French doors that open onto the rear gardens. The well-equipped kitchen / breakfast room has a range of wooden painted units and a padded window seat.

The master bedroom is accessed via a secondary staircase behind a latched door off the kitchen. The main dual staircase is accessed from the centre of the house and leads to a study landing, giving access to three bedrooms and the family bathroom. Bedroom 2 has a small door that links into the master bedroom, all adding charm, character and style to this wonderful beamed period cottage.
