Since 2005 the house and grounds have been transformed by the current owners with part of the property being used as a successful two-bedroom holiday cottage. This could be reinstated or it could be used for multi-generational living.

The 16th century property is a historic cross passage house and has a versatile layout with period features such as tiled floors, medieval doorways and a raft of exposed beams.

The sitting room has a cosy feel and an impressive focal fireplace, while in contrast, the family room is light and airy with neutral modern décor. Adjoining this there's a well-proportioned, triple aspect kitchen that has a fresh stylish look.
