Alma Cottage, named we believe after the battle of Alma in Russia 1890 is a very interesting, some may say 'quirky' three bedroom detached home with a garage, situated just off the wide Georgian High Street, literally within strolling distance of the restaurants, coffee shops, art galleries and a lovely traditional family butchers and bakers. The train station is also within strolling distance with a journey time to London of less than 40 minutes, turn left from the house and follow the trees to the school and playground.
