SITUATION 
Brookside Cottage occupies a delightful and peaceful village position in the historic Plains area of Rattery. Within a very short walk is a beautiful ancient parish church and the well known Church House Inn, noted for its excellent food. Rattery is a vibrant small village with many interesting activities based in the nearby village hall, including a famous annual arts and crafts fair. Surrounding countryside is delightfully unspoilt and offers excellent opportunities for outdoor pursuits. Whilst set within the countryside, Rattery is highly accessible. The A38 dual carriageway is approximately 4 miles, giving easy access to nearby towns. Totnes is 5 miles and provides a great range of independent shops, educational provision and a mainline railway station to London Paddington.

HISTORICAL NOTE 
Brookside Cottage and its neighbour Brook Cottage were originally one property. This was probably a 15th Century open hall house and retains early smoke blackened timbers from when the property was heated by open fires before the addition of chimneys and first floor areas. There are remnants of medieval stone windows, one with surviving cusped light. There are traces of a Newel stair in the rear corner and chamfered lintels.
