The popular villages of Stockland and Dalwood are both less than 2 miles distant in either direction.

Description - The Old Cider House is a most charming detached period home, its historic character sympathetically combined with modern comforts and conveniences throughout providing versatile and welcoming family accommodation. A panelled double glazed entrance door opens to an entrance lobby with double glazed casement windows, cloaks hanging space and time weathered flagstone floor continuing through into the central hall running from the front to the rear of the property and terminating at the Dining/Family Room. Solid pine latch doors lead off either side of the hall into the Sitting Room/Snug, Kitchen/Breakfast Room and Study, the latter two rooms similarly floored in mellow smooth weathered flagstones.
The Sitting Room/Snug is a comfortable cosy room with brick and stone fireplace housing a wood burning stove with beamed ceiling and double glazed casement window to the front. Further along the hall, the Study offers the same character ambience with exposed beams, recessed shelving and inset ceiling downlighting. On the opposite side of the hall is the Kitchen, centred around the original range fireplace which houses an oil fired AGA beneath an exposed bressumer beam. The Kitchen is fitted with a comprehensive range of ivory fronted cupboard and drawer units with co-ordinating tiled splashbacks and inset 4 ring ceramic hob with stainless steel electric oven. Lighting is provided via inset downlighters between original exposed ceiling beams with double glazed casement windows overlooking the gardens with views to surrounding countryside.
