Beautiful period house of great charm and character located in a quiet edge of village setting surrounded by farmland. Wonderful gardens and grounds of about 0.6 of an acre, range of outbuildings. Potential to enlarge subject to planning. EPC rating F

Monks Cottage is a stunning detached country house which, we believe, dates back to the 18th century. Originally three farm workers cottages, it was converted into a single dwelling house in the 1940s and has been improved and upgraded in more recent years. The property has great charm and character with many period features including exposed timbers and open fireplaces. The well-planned accommodation is complemented by stunning landscaped gardens designed by David Stevens. These include areas of formal lawn interspersed with mature flower and shrub boarders, throughout which are seating areas to enjoy different aspects of the garden throughout the day. There is a productive kitchen garden which includes raised beds and soft fruit cages, as well as a number of mature fruit trees. Outbuildings include an octagonal garden room, garden stores, sheds and two large single garages. The property is approached off a no-through lane onto a gravel circular in and out driveway.
