Hillside Cottage is situated in a beautiful setting at the heart of this historical and picturesque village in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Famous for The Dyrham Park Estate, one of England's most beautiful country estates now owned by the National Trust, Dyrham is a delightful village with predominantly stone built properties. The neighbouring villages of Doynton and Hinton have excellent public houses while the nearby village of Marshfield provides further amenities including shops, pubs, a parish church, pre-school nursery and primary school along with a wide range of sports clubs and facilities. Dyrham is ideally placed for easy commuting to Bath (approx 9 miles south) and Bristol (approx 16 miles), both cities provide a wide range of business, recreational, educational and cultural amenities. Junction 18 of the M4 is 3 miles to the north east and Bristol International Airport 21 miles south west. Bath is a World Heritage Site famed for its Roman heritage and Georgian architecture and provides a mainline rail link to London Paddington (journey time approx 90 mins) and Bristol Temple Meads (journey time approx 15 mins). Bath offers excellent schools in both private and state sector. The property is conveniently situated for Kingswood school and The Royal High school in Lansdown.


Hillside Cottage is a detached village house occupying a central location in the popular South Gloucestershire village of Dyrham. Constructed of stone elevations under a clay tiled roof the house was formerly the village post office and stores. Hillside Cottage was originally two separate properties and both the original front doors and staircases still remain. Subject to the necessary consents, the potential exists to re-create 2 semi detached 3 bedroom dwellings. Equally, there is considerable scope to refurbish the existing property to create an exceptional village house within a plot of approximately 1.2 acres.

The accommodation is arranged over 2 floors and there is an abundance of character and charm. On the ground floor there are 2 living rooms, a dining room, kitchen, utility room and a conservatory along with a shower room and a bedroom. Upstairs there are 5 further bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and an additional room with a sink.

There is vehicular access via automatic gates to one side of the property, and driveway parking. Just to the rear of the house is a large dilapidated workshop and store. The garden is mainly laid to lawn and flows into a 0.67 acre field bordered by trees and hedgerows. There is another large outbuilding at the near side of the field for which planning permission has been granted to demolish the building to create a double garage with workshops and storage to the rear. Ref. No: PK13/2845/F

Square Footage: 2,206 sq ft
Acreage: 1.2 Acres
