The Property

A rare opportunity to purchase an unlisted period cottage set in approximately an acre of well stocked gardens in an idyllic setting.

Full of character and charm the cottage shows influence of its 16th Century origins with many doors, beams and fine inglenook fireplace of that period as well as more recent additions including a glass extension added in 2005.

The cottage conveys a relaxed ambience and all rooms have good functionality.

The quarry tiled entrance hall leads to a utility room and onto a bespoke kitchen with integral appliances and stable door to the rear garden. There is an electric oven with gas hob using bottle gas.

The sitting room has a large ingle nook fireplace with a wood burning stove and there is a double aspect guest bedroom with en-suite facilities and French doors opening to the gardens beyond.

There is a recently added extension with a vaulted ceiling and steps to a mezzanine area offering ideal space for home working if required.

Rising to the...


The gardens of approximately an acre are a particular feature of the property and are stocked with a variety of trees and beautiful shrubs.

There is a small woodland area and a pretty patio for outside dining.

There is parking for several cars to the front of the cottage where there is lapsed planning for the erection of a garage (YO4/0433/SH).


The property has a septic tank and oil central heating.
