Manager's Notes ...
Sheepscombe Cottage is situated in a rural village location and enjoys far reaching views over the neighbouring countryside from all aspects. This quaint Grade Two Listed Cottage dates back to the early 19th Century and is a typical Fen half house. It is located in Old Leake Commonside which lies between the historic market town of Boston and the east coastal town of Skegness and is approximately five minutes from the village of Old Leake itself which enjoys several amenities to include schools, village pub and a modern Co-op and a popular community centre.
The bespoke handmade kitchen was designed with a keen cook in mind and along with the bathroom has been sympathetically modernised in recent years to compliment the age and character of the property. The Cottage retains many charming features such as the cast iron range in the kitchen, spacious fitted cupboards, sash windows, latch doors and beams to the ceilings. As you can see from the pictures and the measurements, this is not a big cottage, but I found it to be utterly charming with an incredibly comfortable feeling and great positive energy. This property will be ideal for nature lovers as the bird table was filled on both of my visits with a fabulous selection of birds, and the country lanes are perfect for dog walking while taking in the uninterrupted views over the Lincolnshire Fens and out towards the Wolds. If you are looking for somewhere tucked away from the hustle and bustle of modern life, where you can buy fresh eggs from neighbours but will have to get the car out to nip into the village for your pint of milk, then Sheepscombe Cottage may very well be the prefect property for you....

The current owners have resisted erecting fencing to retain these views, but do advise that washing is well pegged on the line on a blustery day! A driveway to the front provides off road parking for 2-3 cars and leads onto the garden beyond. Interspersed with established bushes, trees and a host of flowering plants and shrubs, the garden changes throughout the seasons and even includes its own asparagus bed. To the rear of the cottage is a patio area, sheltered by established hedging, and quite a little sun-trap too. Two wooden sheds and summer house will remain in the garden.
