Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Originally two thatched cottages believed to date back to 1604 and converted into the Post Office in 1932, the property is constructed of local ironstone beneath a tiled roof. To this day, the property retains a number of the original features including an unusual feature window in the entrance hall and further mullion windows.

The property has been sympathetically improved by the current owners to combine many period features with all the conveniences of modern family living including a well fitted kitchen/breakfast room with built-in appliances, separate utility and cloakroom and an updated bathroom with twin vanity sinks, bath and separate shower.

The Coach House (located directly opposite) was constructed in 1884, also in local ironstone. The building attracts much interest due to the intriguing carvings displayed on the front elevation. It currently comprises a garage and workshop on the ground floor with a home office and gym area on the mezzanine and provides much potential to add further value to conversion into ancillary accommodation, (subject to the necessary planning consents and regulations).

Off road parking for two vehicles is adjacent to The Coach House, directly opposite the main house. A footpath divides the main house from the kitchen garden which is fully enclosed and laid to lawn with a productive vegetable garden, well stocked with a variety of home grown vegetables. This area provides potential to create additional parking with space for a garage (subject to consents, previously granted, now expired).

The South facing terraced gardens are accessed from steps at the rear of the property. The elevated position affords commanding views across the county and beyond. The landscaping of the gardens has created several attractive zones all linked together by pathways that meander throughout. There is an open fronted converted stone pigsty that provides a sheltered haven for Al-Fresco dining and outside entertaining. The garden is partly laid to lawn complemented by well stocked deep flowering borders and apple trees.


The conservation Village of Ratley is situated in the northern Cotswolds and is an area of outstanding natural beauty. The delightful 11th Century Rose and Crown pub is a short walk and The Castle Inn at Edgehill is also within walking distance. The village is within a short drive to the villages of Tysoe (3.5 miles) and Kineton (4.5 miles) both of which have a selection of shops, pubs, a doctor’s surgery and schools. Banbury, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick and Leamington Spa provide a wide range of facilities. From Banbury there is a railway station (London Marylebone under the hour) and access to the M40 (Jct 11 & 12). The village benefits from 6 different footpaths and bridle ways in differing directions to take full advantage of the delightful countryside.
