General Remarks - Compass Rise is believed to be an original village cottage dating back to the Georgian period with later Victorian renovations. Its previous historic incarnations have included a time as the village shop, a doctors surgery and even a weather station for the Met Office, hence the weather vane in the garden and the fairly unusual house name. It is said that it even housed a warning siren during the Cold War years.

In more recent times the property has undergone a comprehensive scheme of refurbishment which included, electrical re-wiring, re-plumbing, central heating, dry lining and insulation which helps to make the house more energy efficient. All the works have been carried out with great taste and a sympathetic eye for detail.

Its elegant accommodation comprises 3 Bedrooms, Sitting Room, combined Living/Dining Room both with woodburners, a beautifully crafted Kitchen with vaulted ceiling, bathroom & cloakroom.
