Full description


We have pleasure in offering to the market this delightful Grade II Listed character cottage, situated right at the heart of this highly regarded and well served village. The property offers a wealth of charm and features with heavily beamed ceilings, deep skirting, chimney breast with attractive solid fuel stove to the sitting room, cottage latch doors and lovely homely atmosphere.

The accommodation is relatively deceptive in its nature, offering two main reception rooms, galley kitchen and enclosed rear lobby. To the first floor, two good sized bedrooms and a particularly generous main bathroom which has been sympathetically modernised blending a contemporary shower enclosure with a more period style suite including a roll top ball and claw bath.

The cottage is well presented throughout and affords a wonderful opportunity for single or professional couple or those looking to downsize requiring a period home but with a low maintenance exterior making it perfect for those that have little time for gardening but require a property on the doorstep of all the local amenities. Despite only having a small courtyard rear garden, Bottesford has various open green spaces and of course access into the Vale of Belvoir for countryside walks.

The village of Bottesford is well equipped with local amenities including primary, secondary and nursery schools, a range of local shops, several public houses and restaurants, railway station with links to Nottingham and Grantham which gives a fast rail link to London's Kings Cross.
