St Margarets Cottage was believed to have been built shortly after 1863 by Sir Philip Rose, and his family owned the property up until the mid 1920s. (More information about Sir Philip Rose can be found on the Penn and Tylers Green village website.) The house was then divided in the early 1960s, to become St Margarets and Silvester Cottage, and the property was purchased by the current owners in the early 1970s.
