Full description

Lime Tree Cottage was formerly known as The Cock Inn public house up until 2013. The census records during the 1800’s list the property as a pub. It is however understood that, albeit unlisted, the property dates back some 400 years. The Cock featured in the 1992 TV series of Lovejoy and in 2006 was the prize destination for the winning chef in Jamie Oliver's TV reality show, 'Jamie's Chef'.

Having undergone a comprehensive overhaul the property now presents a wonderful layout of accommodation arranged over two floors with a wealth of period features and some stylish new additions such as solid oak doors and exposed chrome pipework.

On the ground floor, you arrive into a lobby area leading to the large dining room, a lovely beamed room with inglenook fireplace and inset wood burner. To your right is a continuation of the reception hall with a feature back to back fire place and hatch door to the cellar, the pub’s bar used to run from part of the dining room to the chimney in the reception hall. The living area is accessed from the dining room with an opening both sides of the fireplace, this is also a back to back fire. A bright garden room leads off the living room with doors opening to the rear garden. The open plan kitchen/breakfast room is at the back of the property and also leads out to the garden. On the opposite side of the reception hall is a large family room with doors to a spacious laundry room and study at the end of the property.

On the first floor, the landing/hallway runs across the rear of the house with windows looking to the back. The spacious master bedroom is a double aspect room with dressing area which leads to an ensuite bathroom. There are three further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Externally there is a detached garage and large gravelled drive to the front providing generous off road parking. The rear enclosed garden is laid to lawn with an Indian stone terrace.
