Outside the generous and mature plot is approaching a third of an acre and includes a covered entertaining space, outbuilding and large workshop.

This delightful, traditional spacious thatched cottage is set back from the road in the semi rural village of Perry. Originally three farm cottages built in the 1500s, it was cleverly converted into a sizeable family home several years ago.

A full and comprehensive range of facilities are available nearby in St Neots or Huntingdon, combined with an extensive choice of educational opportunities and the area is served by excellent road and rail links. The surrounding area is dotted with several pretty villages, but the icing on the cake of this lovely location is being so close to Grafham Reservoir where there are opportunities to pursue a wide range of recreational activities such as fishing, sailing, cycling and walking.

Before even viewing the cottage, it was love at first sight for the current owners, once they saw the details. A traditional thatched cottage had always been a dream and, therefore, Treetops, together with its setting, was just perfect for them and has been their much loved family home for the past twenty-seven years. When the family moved into the cottage, it was not quite large enough and, until the sizeable extension was completed, the children had their own bedrooms but the parents had to convert the garage as a bedroom.

Treetop Cottage has been meticulously maintained and refurbished, to create this adaptable, flexible, family home which was ideal as the children grew into adulthood, and perfect now when grandchildren are visiting. This is a friendly, welcoming home and one which the owners love to share with friends and family. The cottage has retained its unique historic character throughout the years and certainly comes into its own at Christmas when the beams are decked and the fire is aglow.

Favourite room: The versatile, elegant main reception room opens into the garden room; a space which is perfect when entertaining large groups of friends and family, particularly with its access into the garden.

Favourite aspect of the grounds or surrounding area: The cottage sits amidst its pretty garden. There are several places in which to sit and relax, one being a roomy, timber built gazebo and this is a favoured space for alfresco dining, especially when BBQs are taking place in the summer months.

Memorable event or, if not possible, another favourite room: The large garden room is utilised throughout the year. It provides a space for relaxation and gives a seamless connection to the surrounding garden.

What theyll miss most and why they are leaving: It will be a very sad day when the owners leave this lovely home. It has been so special for them but is now too large for their needs and it is time for another family to love the house and location as much as they have.
