Step Inside:
The beautiful village of Cwmyoy boasts St Martin's Church, referred to as the 'most crooked church in Great Britain'. Just infront of the church, with beautiful views across the valley, stands The Old Vicarage, believed to have been built in the 18th century. This attractive stone built house is built over 3 floors plus extensive cellars accessed by 2 exterior doors to the front. The house is warm and welcoming with much character and many period features offering a true sense of contentment. Steps lead up to the solid front door which opens into a spacious living/dining room with a fireplace housing a wood burning stove and beautiful exposed wooden beams. A door leads to the rustic style kitchen fitted with a range of wooden cupboards, including a pantry style and floor to ceiling cupboard. Spotlight lighting fitted in the ceiling gives the room a slight modern feel. From the kitchen is a step down to a useful utility/boot room with door to outside. From the living/dining room is a staircase to the first floor giving access to 2 bedrooms, one including an exposed stone fireplace, and a bathroom.

The stone outbuildings comprise a stable, a store and kennel with run. To the side of the house is a parking area leading to a wooden gate opening onto a driveway/area of hard standing. To this side of the house are mature gardens with lawn and planted trees. A path leads to the front door and continues to the outbuildings on the far side.
