Ivy Cottage is a delightful Grade II Listed thatched cottage in a most peaceful and secluded rural location.

Internally the cottage boasts some lovely country features, with exposed stonework, a beautiful open fireplace and visible ceiling timbers. The ground floor comprises a kitchen / diner with Aga, large living room, separate dining room. Two staircases makes the accommodation quite versatile and on the first floor there are three good sized bedrooms, a potential fourth bedroom and a family bathroom, with space / potential to create additional bathroom / shower rooms.

Outside the gardens offer plenty of space and a great deal of seclusion, the whole grounds measure just over 1 acre with the front garden overlooking nearby countryside. The gardens are nicely laid out and mainly laid to lawn but offer the potential for a variety of purposes and could quite easily be turned into productive vegetable plots / flower gardens or space for animals.
