Full description

This charming and cosy cottage, which is said to date back to the 18th Century, once stood as two separate dwellings which were occupied by the same families for several generations. Over the last twenty nine years the property has been sympathetically renovated with the cottage still being steeped in much character. The current owners have retained and refurbished many of the original features such as doors, flooring and an inglenook fireplace boasting a bread oven and a pudding stone lintel.

There is a cosy sitting room enjoying exposed stone walls as well as a warming log burning stove, kitchen/diner, study, utility area and cloakroom. The first floor affords two double bedrooms with both rooms enjoying fetching views over the gardens, as well a modern shower room and separate wc. The outside of the property enjoys most spectacular gardens offering a wealth of lawned areas, chicken coups, fruit cages and ample parking for several vehicles. The property also affords a substantial workshop having light and power, a garage and several stores.

Located nearby is the historic village of St Briavels, which was once known as 'Ledenia Parva' (Little Lydney) and benefits from many local amenities including public house, village shop, Church, Primary school (rated excellent by Ofstead), Doctors' surgery and dry moated castle, which is located approximately 8 miles from Chepstow allowing easy access to Bristol and Cardiff via the M48, and towards Birmingham via the M50.
