Breakpools is situated towards the edge of the village and comprises a very attractive Grade II Listed house which dates originally from the 17th century. Built in the vernacular style of Cotswold stone with casement windows, the house has great charm and character. Internally, the accommodation is well-proportioned and the rooms are a much better size than you might expect for a property of this age and style. The drawing room in particular is an impressive 26 feet in length. Like the adjoining sitting room, this has a beamed ceiling and fireplace, as well as a door onto the garden. The kitchen overlooks the garden and is fitted with a range of wall and floor units. As currently arranged, there is a ground floor bedroom with bathroom en suite. On the first floor is a master bedroom suite and four further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
