Full description

Ideally located in a tucked away setting towards the upper outskirts of this lovely Cotswold village. Jingle Cottage has something for most people in any family. It has a wonderful rambling garden, of about 0.68 acre, which gardeners will enjoy and children can hide in.   There are two excellent conservatories from where you can take in the colourful gardens. On the far boundary is a little gate which leads onto the Village cricket ground, beyond which is the outstanding Cranham Common managed by Natural England and home to lots of rare and endangered species including wild orchids. To the edge of the village are the ancient beechwoods. This a truly beautiful area in which to live.

The house has adaptable accommodation with three bedrooms upstairs and a garden suite downstairs which has a double bedroom, ensuite and conservatory. The rest of this substantial family home comprises: entrance hall, cloakroom/wc. dining room with glazed double doors to the sitting room which in turn opens onto the lovely Victorian style conservatory. There is also a kitchen breakfast room and utility on this floor.

Built in the 1970's in a traditional Cotswold style with mullioned windows, the house enjoys plenty of natural light with views from virtually all the windows to the extensive gardens. A gravelled driveway leads to the house with a garage and car port to the side. Also outside is a generous summer house/chalet/studio and another substantial timber outbuilding as well as the usual garden sheds and greenhouses which are hidden away.

This house and village provides country living at its best. There is a popular village primary school and a typical Cotswold pub in the village, yet Cheltenham is only eight miles away and motorway access is even closer.

The gardens of Jingle Cottage are truly wonderful with space to the front and to the rear. Both areas give a great feeling of privacy yet you are not in an isolated location. The gardens are well established, abundant and colourful with hidden sitting areas dotted around. To the front the garden is dominated by a large circular lawn which is bordered by flower beds and then beech hedging which almost gives a maze effect.   To the rear there are many, varied and unusual plants and shrubs which appear year after year. There is an excellent Summerhouse/Studio and a subsantial timber built store which has been used as a children play area. As well as all the colour there are also productive areas with soft fruits and fruit trees. Tool sheds, greenhouse and pond. This is a gardeners delight in which enthusiasts can just lose themselves .
