A classic Cotswold stone cottage enjoying an unspoilt situation.
The village of Buckland nestles in a secluded hollow under the Cotswold Ridge, at the foot of Burhill, part of the north west Cotswold escarpment. The village is within the Administrative County of Gloucestershire. It is a quiet and tranquil setting with a No-Through road, situated in a Conservation Area within the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is perhaps one of the most attractive and totally unspoilt of the smaller North Cotswold villages. The village is made up of mainly Listed and period stone properties. The Rectory, directly opposite the property, is acknowledged to be the most complete and oldest house of its kind in the country.
The Church of St Michael dates back to the medieval era and occupies an elevated position adjacent to Buckland Manor Hotel, a renowned country hotel set in manicured gardens and grounds.
The famous village of Broadway lies approximately two miles to the north. The small Cotswold town of Winchcombe is located seven miles to the south and caters for most daily requirements. The larger centre of Cheltenham which is very accessible, provides more comprehensive shopping, leisure and cultural facilities and is renowned for its selection of educational establishments, both state and private. There is a first class health club at the Lygon Arms Hotel in Broadway for private members. The mainline railway station at Moreton-in-Marsh, about 13 miles distant, provides access to London Paddington, whilst the M5 (J9) provides swift access to the Midlands and the south-west of England. The surrounding countryside offers opportunity for good horse riding and walking along the Cotswold Way.
Woodbine Cottage is set along a pretty No-Through lane. The property is a charming Grade II Listed country cottage with an attractive garden and is constructed of mellow Cotswold stone under a Cotswold stone tiled roof (professionally re-roofed 2007).
The property boasts a wealth of original features such as stone mullion windows, an impressive inglenook fireplace and exposed wall and ceiling timbers. The current vendors have enlarged the property during their tenure creating a most attractive country kitchen/breakfast room. Situated to the rear of the property is an attractive lean to garden room which in turn provides access to the comfortable dining room with a fine stone fireplace. A door leads from the dining room to the study which has a stone mullion window and exposed ceiling timbers. The current vendors have installed a WC and basin and the necessary plumbing for a shower to enable the conversion of the study to a third bedroom if required. There is a double aspect kitchen/breakfast room which is well fitted out with a traditional range of units incorporating integrated appliances and Classic Rangemaster oven, tiled floor and stable door to the terrace. Leading on from the dining room is a charming double aspect sitting room with an impressive inglenook fireplace, with bressumer beam over, housing a wood burning stove. The sitting room has exposed stone walls, ceiling timbers, the original entrance door and a window seat. From the sitting room a door opens to the staircase which rises to an attractive landing with a stone mullion window. Bedroom on e, which has views across to the Rectory gardens and the Cotswold escarpment beyond, has exposed wall timbers and purlins, a Victorian cast iron grate and a good range of fitted cupboards. Bedroom two is a well-proportioned and pretty room with a stone mullion window with views overlooking the cottage garden, exposed wall and ceiling timbers and a fitted cupboard and has access to a recently installed en suite shower room. There is a well fitted family bathroom with exposed ceiling timbers.
The gardens, which are partly enclosed by dry stone walling and mature hedges, lie principally to the north west of the property and are laid out in a traditional English style and briefly comprise of an expanse of lawn and deep herbaceous borders, fruit trees and a wildlife pond. There is a terrace adjacent to the cottage ideal for al fresco dining.
An attractive stone privy constructed of mellow Cotswold stone under a natural Welsh slate roof is situated to the far corner of the garden. A good sized timber garage and an area of gravelled off street parking are accessed through timber gates.
From Broadway take the B4632 road signposted Winchcombe/Cheltenham. Proceed along this road for approximately one and a half miles and take the first turning left signposted Buckland. Upon entering the village take the first turning left into a small No-Through lane. Woodbine Cottage is then the second property in the lane facing the rear of the Rectory.
