DESCRIPTION Set in the historic hamlet of Cowslip Green near Wrington where Hannah More, the famed 18th century English writer and philanthropist once lived, Cowslip Cottage is an Edwardian detached cottage of character and charm set in an idyllic semi rural plot on the edge of fields with stunning countryside views. The beauty of the position is the wonderful feeling of privacy and quiet, indeed once you enter the gates you really could be anywhere, yet crucially, you are convenient for everything. Bristol is 15 minutes drive away for the commute or via the A1 link bus (which takes a bit longer), a bus for the well regarded local schools at Wrington and Churchill stops literally outside, and other amenities are eminently accessible (there is a farm shop 5 minutes away!).

Cowslip Cottage is a deceptive three/four bedroom detached cottage offering a spacious and versatile living accommodation arranged over two floors. Our vendors have been in situ for 20 years and in that period have undertaken an array of improvement works that really have served to enhance the living space, whilst focussing the attention on that idyllic countryside outlook. The spacious living space briefly comprises, on the ground floor; entrance hallway, kitchen, breakfast/family room, living room, dining room/snug with woodburner, downstairs WC and study/bedroom four. Upstairs there are three further bedrooms (including two doubles) and a 'Jack and Jill' style family bathroom. The cherry on the top upstairs is a wonderful roof terrace with dwarf walls accessed off one of the double bedrooms, a fantastic space for a glass of wine or sunbathing whilst surveying the view.

As mentioned the property is approached via a gated gravel drive which provides off street parking for a number of vehicles. This leads to the versatile outbuilding which currently comprises a large double garage and a utility room with a shower room off (as the property once had a swimming pool, long since filled in, this was built as a changing room). We feel that there is real scope (subject to consents) for this to be ancillary accommodation, perhaps as an annex, a studio, a holiday let, or a teenagers pad and our vendors have considered this, but decided against it as they don't need more space.

The gardens are an idyllic haven, private and quiet and very well tended with many areas for seating or outside dining. They comprise a beautifully tended front garden with pond and lawning, a good sized and level lawned rear garden where the kids could have a kickaround, and an idyllic and evocative paved patio next to the family room sliding doors providing stunning countryside views... The perfect spot for a glass of wine of an evening watching the sunset!

Cowslip Cottage is a one off property that really does offer it all... Spacious and versatile accommodation, character in spades, outbuilding with significant potential, gardens to die for and a rural aspect with real convenience. In our view, an early look will be essential!

Our vendor says ... We have loved living at Cowslip Cottage over the past 20 years. The property is in a fabulous location with stunning views over open fields to the Mendips. We think that the house is very attractive, and well designed to provide a light stunning aspect at all times of the day. The large gardens are a joy providing a pond garden and a cottage garden for us, and a safe lawned garden for our family. We would love to be able to take both the house, and garden with us when we move!

We have noticed ... A well presented and deceptive character cottage of charm and space that must be seen internally, in the absolutely idyllic hamlet of Cowslip Green. That family/breakfast room with its patio door and view is a delight, the other reception rooms very impressive, and the bedrooms versatile, with impressive storage. The property is elevated however by that one off position with far reaching views, beautiful countryside on the doorstep, and real convenience for everything. A gem of a house, in a jewel of a spot, with real scope for a buyer of vision to make of it what they will, both in the main house and the outbuilding. 

SITUATION Cowslip Green is a hamlet near Wrington. Situated with good access to local amenities and surrounded by beautiful countryside, Wrington (www.wringtonsomerset.org.uk) is the jewel in the crown of the Wrington Vale and one of the most sought after villages in North Somerset. Indeed not only is it picturesque with a lengthy and interesting history, but it benefits from facilities usually reserved for a larger town. The essential ingredients of a good village are known in the property business as the seven Ps; pub, primary school (recently awarded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted), post office, parson, public transport, phone box and petrol station. There is also a pharmacy, satellite doctor's surgery, dentist and coffee shop, village grocery shop and a separate off licence/convenience store; Wrington has it all! Secondary schooling is available at nearby Churchill Academy and Sixth Form Centre (www.churchill.n-somerset.sch.uk) which has also recently been awarded 'Outstanding' by Ofsted and also benefits from a modern sports complex, and transport for local children provided daily. There are also further schools both state and private at Bristol, Backwell, Wraxall and Chew Magna. The area around is well known for its beauty and offers a variety of community pursuits within a drive. Indeed, riding, walking, fishing, sailing and dry skiing are just some of the activities available within a few miles. The village of Wrington is within commuting distance of the City of Bristol and the seaside town of Weston-super-Mare and there is access to the motorway network at Clevedon (junction 20) and St. Georges (junction 21). There is an international airport at Lulsgate and a mainline railway station at Yatton. 

DIRECTIONS Proceeding south from Bristol on the A38 after passing Bristol Airport continue down Redhill past The Darlington Arms and turn left just past the farmshop at the bottom of the hill into Cowslip Green. Continue along this winding country lane for approximately a quarter of a mile and Cowslip Cottage can be found on your right hand side with a Debbie Fortune Estate Agents' For Sale board.
