Description: Chapel Cottage is an utterly charming timber-framed property which is not listed, and was rebuilt and extended within the last fifty years using reclaimed historic materials.

It sits beautifully nestled within its own private and mature gardens, which will provide any purchaser with peaceful countryside tranquillity, yet retaining the ease of access to central Worcester within about 30 minutes.
Chapel Cottage is entered from a quiet country lane and down its own private and secluded driveway, to a gravelled parking area. The property is then entered through a solid oak door into a porch, which opens into the slate-tiled floored Kitchen/Breakfast Room. The kitchen/breakfast room has an oil-fired Aga, supported by an electric hob and oven, and arched brick-built kitchen units.
