Full description

Remember the TV series 'The Good Life'?
It was a sitcom from the 1970's about Tom and Barbara Good who decided to opt out of their steady jobs to live off the land by growing their own veg, rearing animals and living off the land.
Well, the very same thought occurred to me when I went round Lane End Cottage??you could do just that if you came to live here! It's difficult to imagine when you arrive, you are not miles away from civilization - you can be at one with nature here, without a sound, apart from the birds in the hedgerows and cattle in the fields - paradise!
In addition to the paddocks, there are formal gardens to the front and rear of the cottage with fabulous views down the valley over open countryside. Whether you decide to graze livestock or keep horses, you will find a number of useful outbuildings including a milking parlour, stables and an open fronted hay barn, in addition to other useful smaller outbuildings and storage sheds.
The cottage itself has many olde-worlde features from a bygone era, especially noticeable in the 2 separate downstairs reception rooms with their beamed ceilings. The dining room has a very ornate inglenook fireplace surround with recessed display alcoves and both double bedrooms have original cast iron open grates. An electric AGA will be found in the kitchen and this certainly throws out some heat. There are 2 shower rooms, one upstairs and one downstairs and the large modern uPVC conservatory is a lovely room in which to relax (and fall asleep in) especially during the Spring and Summer months.
This property is a registered smallholding and it is served by its own private (spring) water supply that is allegedly delicious.
Anyway, to touch on a previous point, this property is not miles from anywhere; it is in fact relatively close to both Malpas and No Man's Heath. Admittedly, you will have to navigate a narrow, winding country lane to get there and as the name suggests, this is a no through road, so you are unlikely to encounter boy-racers screeching past your window.
You see, this really is 'The Good Life'. Don't just take my word for it though - call us to book your viewing on 01948 665566
