Tucked away down a quiet lane opposite the church, River Cottage has been lovingly updated and improved by the current owners, to include a new roof using reclaimed slate, rebuilding chimney stacks, repointing and painting the exterior, as well as replacing ceilings and updating the electrics and lighting.

Sympathetically modernised to include a fantastic green oak extension off the kitchen, whilst boasting plenty of character, this stone cottage comprises of an oak porch that leads into the living room with slate floor, exposed beams, two fireplaces and a trap door down to the cellar. The open-plan kitchen/dining/garden room is a brilliant, sociable space that consists of a modern fitted kitchen, oil-fired AGA, slate floor and a wood burning stove. The fully glazed, oak frame extension with vaulted ceilings, provides tranquil garden views, as well as access out to the raised decking seating area. Between the kitchen and living room, there is a WC off the inner hall, that is a useful cloaks store.

A stone staircase off the living room takes you upstairs, which has been reconfigured to provide three well-proportioned bedrooms, airing cupboard and contemporary bathroom with shower over the freestanding bath.

Outside, the large garden is a real haven, well-stocked with a range of shrubs, flowering plants, fruit trees and plenty of raised beds to keep any aspiring gardener busy. The garden has been terraced, providing level lawn areas between wild flower banks. The stone patio with pergola and raised decking are both excellent places to relax or entertain and enjoy the beautiful countryside views.

There is parking to the side of the house and gated access at the rear into the garden. Land providing additional parking for two vehicles has also been recently purchased, close to the cottage. Steps down from the lane take you to a re-roofed stone outbuilding that still has its original cast iron range, as well as water, power and lighting. There are also two useful storage sheds, a lean-to tin shed and a rediscovered ‘ty bach’.
