The Old Vicarage - The Old Vicarage comprises a charming and typical example of a Victorian period ecclesiastical residence, having been constructed in approximately 1880 and retaining many of its beautiful period features. The vicarage was sold by the Church in 1963 and has been privately owned ever since. The property is not listed and has been sympathetically modernised to suit modern day requirements.
The accommodation is well laid out and is both adaptable and spacious and offers two formal reception rooms set either side of the entrance hall, both with high ceilings and attractive bay windows. There is a further snug/study, large kitchen with pantry and rear conservatory/sun room, as well as a WC, on the ground floor. There is also a useful cellar room.
The first floor boasts 5 bedrooms, 3 with en-suite, and a family bathroom.

The Coach House - The current owners have improved the property by converting the old Coach House into additional annexe accommodation. This work was carried out in 2009. The Coach House offers an open plan kitchen/living and dining room, conservatory and bathroom on the ground floor, with a double bedroom on the first floor. There is also a laundry room on the ground floor which is accessed externally and is used in conjunction with the main house.
The Coach House has it's own garden and parking area and is ideal for use by a family member or holiday let.

Gardens And Grounds - The gardens and grounds for the property as a whole are generous and surround it on all sides, and are divided into lawned areas with a selection of mature trees, both native and non native, interspersed and forming the boundaries. Of particular note are the pair of Monkey Puzzle trees situated in the roundabout on the driveway. The owners have recently made a wildlife pool with decked walkways and have established a polytunnel and raised beds for growing vegetables.
Outbuildings comprise a garage, potting shed and original pig sty, together with further garden store.
